If you need a break from temples
What we say:
The silk-weaving centre is a silk manufacturing project run by Soieries Du Mekong, a French company that produces silk scarves and other attire.
The centre employs 70 locals and an English-speaking guide will give you a tour of the entire operation from the beginning of the manufacturing process to the end. At the end of your tour you'll be presented with a collection of items available for sale, at which point you'll probably feel inclined to buy something. The cheapest item available for purchase was $5.00. A gallery of the items being produced are available on the company's website, but it's in French.
