Arrive Siem - Silk Farm - Banteay Srei - Cycle Roluos - Contemporary Art Gallery Tour - Siem Reap - Bokator- Wat Athvea


An adventurous 4 day program showing guests the creative talents and products produced by local people, while allowing the chance for them to also test their skills and admire the stunning surrounding architecture. On bikes guests travel from the local NGO ‘Golden Silk Pheach Farm’, to Banteay Srei temple and through the Rolous Group temples while stopping at a number of galleries and dining in a selection of recommended restaurants.

Day 1 - Arrive Siem - Silk Farm - Banteay Srei (L,D)

Upon your arrival in the morning our driver and your English-speaking guide will pick you up from the airport and they will transfer you to your hotel for check-in. Then, cycle to local silk weaving enterprise where the client can take part in the process. 

Golden Silk Pheach Farm, a local NGO that helps to revive the ancient Khmer know-how in silk activities and provides job opportunities to more than 100 local staff. The farm area, mulberry trees and weaving ateliers can be seen as part of the guided tour. Golden Silk products are ecologically produced from the yellow silkworm which is unique to Cambodia. Some of the silk products are months, or even years, in the making and each one is unique. This is one for the connoisseurs of high quality craftwork.  

Enjoy a picnic lunch at Banteay Srei Pagoda before setting out to explore the temple itself. 

The pretty temple of Banteay Srei. The so-called “Citadel of the Women” remains the best preserved temple in Cambodia. It displays some of the finest examples of classical Khmer art as this small temple is noted for its truly remarkable fine bas-reliefs. Banteay Srei is unique in that it is constructed of pink sandstone, which is seen nowhere else in Angkor. 

Enjoy dinner at the renowned Cuisine Wat Damnak (closed Sunday/Monday in low season and Monday in high season). Cuisine Wat Damnak was founded on the simple concept of using only local fresh seasonal produce with which to create exquisite Cambodian food. The Head Chef and owner Joannès Rivière has a reputation as one of the top chefs in Cambodia and is the author of the book, ‘Cambodian Cooking’, one of the first cookbooks on Khmer cuisine.
