It is really just a shop - I was expecting to see and have explained the candle making process. There are a range of other tourist shops in the compound, but the prices are no different from town or the hotel.

This is THE place for one-stop souvenir shopping! In addition to a nice variety of beautiful, high quality candles, they also have shops selling funny mugs/magnets, batiks and hand woven scarves. An open area in front displays wood crafts. Allow 11/2-2 Hours. .
