    Incredible, such amazing service and patience with myself as a foreigner. I learned so much and probably spent too much but this was a great experience

    This was one of the cooler experiences I’ve had while traveling. Our guide, Siphat, was extremely friendly and patient with us, as it was our first time in Cambodia. Getting to see how the scarves are made from worm to loom was so great. Cannot recommend enough
