"Welcome to Artisans d'Angkor!" "Welcome to Artisans d'Angkor!"

This is the main showroom of Artisans d'Angkor in Siem Reap. The finished handicrafts of the various workshops are displayed for the viewing pleasure of visitors as well as for sale.

There are wood and stone carvings of many recognizable ancient Khmer statues and bas reliefs found in the temples in Angkor. Silk products are also plentiful. During my visit, there was a certain French woman who just couldn't get enough of the high quality silk items. She purchased quite a big quantity of silk items here and later again at the Artisans d'Angkor silk factory about 15km away.

Hello... I Am Josh

A little about me

Josh For some, it's shopping therapy. Others, movie therapy. Yet more, reading therapy. For me, it's writing therapy.
Why writing? When I travel, I enjoy first-hand the experience like in shopping therapy. But when I write about my travels, I live vicariously the experience again, as if like a movie sequel (or more like GroundHog Day, except that this is fun!). Yes, writing evokes the memories, the fun and the not-so-fun but all-in-all it gives the satisfaction of reliving the sense of place once more.
With images, it enhances the experience down one's travel memory lane. With this in mind, I hope to share my travel stories in words and images with you. For your escape therapy! More...
