As interesting as Angkor may be, Angkor Historical Park has no accommodations and few facilities. The nearby town of Siem Reap is the tourist hub for the area. Together with Tonle Sap Lake and its "floating villages" Siem Reap is an interesting attraction in itself with colorful markets, friendly people and local crafts. Artisans d'Angkor is a self-supporting craft and silk workshop that not only sells beautiful Cambodian silks, sculptures and other crafts, but trains and teachers local disadvantaged youths trades and skills.
