The farm is located just 20 minutes away from Siem Reap downtown – this part of the town is heavily forested and offers you stunning views.
You can rent a car, a motorbike or go for a tuk-tuk, the journey up to the farm is an experience in itself as you’ll be travelling through green paddy fields and stilted wooden houses – if you are staying at a place like FCC Angkor Managed by Avani Hotels & Resorts, you’ll get all the help you need in arranging the trip to the farm.
One of the Siem Reap attractions is the mulberry trees plantations at Angkor Silk Farm. These plantations are where you can see the process that produces silk.
The tour through the farm
At the entrance, you will be greeted by a friendly guide who will introduce you to the workshops offered by the farm and subsequently walk you through the small green alleys.
Why you should visit
You get to learn a bit about silk farming which is an extremely complex yet a fascinating process; how the silkworms are grown in the mulberry plantations and how they gradually turn into cocoons are amazing things to see.
