Step into Cambodia’s exclusive creative circle with our curator who will introduce you to artists, fashion designers and photographers putting Siem Reap on the world stage.
Start your day meeting two inspiring brothers who are preserving and promoting traditional Khmer lacquerware. Learn how this family business uses all-natural materials to create unique pieces which have been commissioned by Cartier, Hermès and Louis Vuitton.
Enjoy insider access to the studio of a designer who has worked with Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Lacroix. Eric Raisina creates all of his designs by hand using natural fabrics, including ones he has innovated such as ‘silk fur’ and ‘raffia lace’. His couture fashion can be found in Paris, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. You’re sure to be tempted by his stunning signature collection.
Situated south of Siem Reap's historic French Quarter is the shopping hub of Kandal Village (also known as Hap Guan Street). Browse the boutiques and craft shops showcasing the work of local artisans. Take time out for a refreshing drink in one of the many cafés which line the colonial-style street.
Round off your day viewing a dramatic collection of images which capture the beauty of the iconic Angkor Wat temple, taken by a celebrated photographer whose work has appeared in The New York Times. Before heading back to the hotel, you’ll have time to admire the creative works in a contemporary art gallery.
