Artisans d' Angkor has a few shops, selling traditional crafts rooted in the Khmer cultural heritage. The products are made in the Artisans d'Angkor workshops or in the villages all over the country.

I visited the shop in Siem Reap in a nice green garden after I had visited the nearby workshops of stone and woodcarving and lacquer and sandstone gilding of the Chantiers-Ecoles de Formation Professionel.

I was surprised about the warm-coloured and elegant atmosphere of the shop and the quality of the products. Except wood and stone carving, lacquering and gilding crafts there is also a huge collection of silk products from the National Silk Center in Puok like scarfs, home accessoires and fashioned clothes.

What to buy: Because I had to travel further afterwards I bought only some small light-weight things like a colourful scarf and a monk bag of silk, a bowl lacquered in black and gold and a few warm coloured and nicily designed bamboo fans. But if you have the intention to buy a huge statue, the products can be shipped all over the world.
