End of the year and that’s it.
At one point in your Siem Reap trip, you WILL get tired of seeing yet another temple. :D
When you do, check out Artisans d’Angkor in Stung Thmey Street. Artisans d’Angkor is a Cambodian social business that was originally created to revive Khmer cultural heritage while helping young rural people find work near their home village.
A guide will give you a free tour of the place, which features a series of workshops that showcase Khmer workmanship—from techniques in stone and wood carving, to lacquering, silver plating and silk painting. It’s quite fascinating seeing the process of transforming a block of wood/stone into the stunning finished pieces they sell at the souvenir shop. If you’re artistically inclined or enjoy seeing how a fine piece of handicraft is put together, a visit here is well worth it and should be part of your Siem Reap itinerary :)
