On the corner of 5th and the main street is an excellent shoe maker. It takes a few days for him to do it so go to him first and see the sights later. I had a pair of leather sandals for $27. T guy who showed a pair I was wearing which I had mad in 1979. He also... More

WE understood that this enterprise strives to alleviate poverty in Cambodia by providing the young rural people with free training and fair job opportunities while at the same time revitalising authenic traditional Khmer silk and handicrafts. WE walked to the crafts workshops in Old Market and called their hotline to book the free shuttle bus to visit their SILK FARM.... More

Plus points: Free informative guided tour, interesting watching the workers busy learning their craft, provides the opportunity for young Cambodians to learn a skill and continue the traditional crafts of Cambodia, beautiful end products stunningly displayed and reasonably priced (well mostly). Minus points: Extremely busy when we visited (at least 6 buses in the carpark) meaning we felt like we... More

A great place to view how traditional artisans worked and created. Shopping store was beautifully merchandised. Not cheap, but quality is much better than local market shopping. Great place for gifts.

Wonderful gifts for yourself and friends, family back home. Exquisite quality in silk, clothes, scarves... you can't find back home. Stone carvings, lacquer ware, a bit of porcelain, jewelry... enough items to buy and make you happy and them happy because you support landmine victims...

Had a tour through the workshops - nice welcome and had one tour guide to myself, but he didn't really know very much, just pointed stuff out and moved on fast. Would have liked to know more about the business/craftsmen. It's basically a tourist trap, lots of tour coaches in the car park. Shop is pretty fancy and overpriced. Nice... More

We did the tour and while I found it interesting, I did feel a little like I was imposing on the artists creative space. Obviously the guides go through all day, but it felt very much like 'this is the lacquer exhibit' whereas I would have been more interested in the people. That said, they make some lovely items here.... More

I was going to avoid the workshop tour, and head straight for the shop. However, I plumped for the tour, and the guide took me through the various items of craftwork they made and sold. To be honest, I found it quite interesting, and while there were a lot of people overtaking me to get to the shop, I was... More

if you are interested in the local handicrafts wait until you get here. Most tour operators will take you there and they source (because they actually are the ones who make the stuff) many of the stores in town and elsewhere. And at a cheaper price, too. Very nice explanations of their crafting processes, some very nice things to buy... More

I was looking forward to this tour. On arriving we were told all tour guides are too busy to show us around.We were told to just walk around our self.It was ok nothing wow. The show is VERY expensive and while I would of love to brought something, it was way out of my price range
