The tour I did was very informative. Young people are trained in their natural craft man ship, wood carving, stone carving, lacquered wood and many more arts. It was good to see the Artisans at work performing their gifted abilities. There is also a fantastic shop to buy the most amazing and beautiful gifts.

The workmanship of the peices here is impeccable. Definitely worth every cent for a genuine, hand carved peice of Cambodia.

A great place to visit to see how things are made and learn how the local people are helped by this organisation. You then have the chance to buy good quality products in the shop.

Top quality items that help disabled individuals when you buy. Be prepared to pay more for the best. I was even able to exchange an item (with itemized receipt) the next day.

While in Siem reap, one must visit this place to get an insight into the way artefacts are prepared. It was interesting and informative. When you arrive there, one of the guides from the company will take you around to various counters where artists are actually preparing the masterpieces. You can interact with them and also see the amount of... More

The Cambodian people have endured much in their history but they are happy, forgiving and very into the crafts of the ancient people. Just love this place

This is an NGO where profits go back into educating people in the artisans' skills. The products are first class, made in Cambodia and are wonderful treasures to have as souvenirs or to take home as gifts. We also visited the silk farm, which is out of town. It is fun to be able to watch the artists creating their... 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
