Artisans d'Angkor - Siam Reap, Cambodia


The tiring yet marveling day at Angkor (Part 1 and Part 2) totally knocked us out. Thus, no one was up to mark to chat during dinner and all the way back to the hotel. The next morning, we started at Artisans d'Angkor - a centre for training the handicraft skills of the disable and to improve the life of rural people as well. Here, we walked to see the work of the special people, and then before leaving we stopped by at the store to see if we will be interested in purchasing the skilfully made beautiful high quality products that comes with high price tags. I doubt if anyone bought, certainly I didn't, from here, we then journeyed for lunch.
















Up next: Cambodian restaurant.

  1. So interesting to see these pictures of skilled artisans at work. Your post reminded me of such a place in Bhutan. They didn't seem to be distracted by the tourists who looked on and took photos. They went on working. Another aspect of Cambodian life that we might not have seen otherwise. Looking forward to your lunch in a Cambodian restaurant.
