We went here on the he recommendation of a friend and our tour guide. The old adage, "You get what you pay for" is evident here as each item is carefully crafted by a trained local person who has spent a lot of time and patience perfecting his/her craft. The items are beautiful, and the prices reflect the quality.
Taking the tour of the workshops should help give you a good idea of how and why this place exists. (I just read some of the reviews that gave poor ratings and it seems these people just didn't pay attention and/or understand the concept.) if you are after cheap mementos, don't bother, but if you are looking for very nice souvenirs and gifts, as well as a for a way to support the local economy, then spend some time here! Give at least two hours for the tour and shopping. There is a Blue Pumpkin stall outside the shop for snacks should you need a little something while you shop. :) you can shop here without doing the tour, but if you don't have time, there is a shop at the airport just passed immigration and the prices are the same. There is also a small shop across from Angkor Wat, in next to the Blue Pumpkin (The sign outside May read "Angkor Cafe").
