The Angkor Art and Culture College is a school established by the Cambodian Department of Education and the French government to preserve the ancient civilization and artistic heritage of Angkor Wat.
The students enrolled in this school are children from poor families and orphans who lost their loved ones due to war, and some are disabled children.
There is a handicraft store in the school with a shop front and a factory back. The handicrafts sold here are more refined than those in the downtown shops, and the name of the producer is engraved on it. Of course, its price is higher than the market.
The Angkor Art and Culture College is a non-profit organization in Cambodia. The school was completed in 1992 and is located in the alley near the Siem Reap night market. This is a traditional crafts vocational technical school established by the education department of Cambodia to preserve the heritage of ancient civilization and art of Angkor Wat. Here you can learn the traditional techniques and professional skills of wood carving, stone carving, silverware, lacquerware, painted painting, silk painting and silk. The school workshop is available for visitors to visit. The Angkor Art School, although small in scale, has lush tropical trees, lush flowers and plants, and sculptures of figures can be seen everywhere in the garden. The red walls, green trees, stone paths, and winding paths are quiet, with a Khmer style, like a beautiful garden school. The artisans of the Angkor Art School hold 20% of the school’s shares and have their own labor union. Their wages are higher than the Cambodian average. Among them are deaf, dumb, disabled, and young people from poor families. They are self-reliant, pursuing a happy life with their hands and labor. The first picture on the left is the shop in the Angkor Art School, which contains handicrafts such as stone and woodware and silk clothing daily necessities carefully carved by artisans. The wood-carved Khmer smiling Buddha head is a characteristic memorial of Angkor Wat tourism. Friends who like to collect can take a look! From the store, there is a coffee cold drink shop, selling coffee, milk tea, beverages, coconut, boxed instant noodles and other snacks.

This is an art workshop set up by a French charity for poor Cambodian students, and there are scenes of their work and an art sales hall on site. The silk scarves in this house are the best in the world, with excellent quality and Buddhist themes. Stone sculptures, silverware, mahogany carvings, silk products, everything.
In the form of handicraft workshops, most of the people who study are locals. The teachers are very friendly and point to the unit. They can see textiles, ceramics, accessories, etc., and there are also window displays for sale. Although it is not big, they can be dazzled. Pick your favorite item here as a souvenir.
Cambodia, Siem Reap. In the small alley near the old market, near the river. There are many open handicraft factories to visit, and you can see the process of crafts production. I see that everyone commented that the crafts for sale were made in this way, and what kind of behavior is public welfare, you are led by the tour guide, too young too navie. How can such a large amount of sales be made by a few small shack? It's just to visit the show, just for you to buy it. The shop after the visit is very full, two to three times more expensive than the market, but the quality is better, perhaps for psychological reasons, and the packaging is good, which is good for giving away.
