Free tour but you need to prepare to give some tips. The workers' skills were amazingly good. It took a lot of work for them to weave one silk scarf. If you want to buy some silk products you should get it here. I found the price at the airport shop was doubled.

A bit far from the city, but nice to see the silk production here. From the entrance we will lead by the guide who will inform us about everything during the tour. In the end we can buy some souvenir, good product even though a bit expensive.

Better to take a car instead of Tuk Tuk if you are from city centre.

Not often you get a free tour. Fascinating process and worth the visit! Now I understand why silk is so expensive

Lovely place and definitely worth a visit. We had a really informative guide that spoke excellent English.

The tour was really good and it was fascinating to see the live silk worms and watch the incredibly skilled women working in the farm and watch them getting the silk from the worms, making the material patterns, handpicking EACH SINGLE thread of silk and then dyeing and weaving them together.

All the staff were really friendly and happy to talk and have pictures taken

The store at the end of the tour is amazing! Really gorgeous clothing on offer and I now understand just how much work goes into handcrafted silk, the prices in the shop reflect this and clothing is quite expensive but having seen the effort that goes into making each piece it's easy to appreciate why it's so expensive.

We then stayed and had some drinks and ice cream at the on site cafe which was nice and relaxing!

A lovely way to spend a couple of hours and learn about an interesting craft.
