Siem Reap is not large city, but is growing quickly. Motorbike “tuk-tuks” are the easiest way to get around the town and are a popular way to see Angkor Wat. Tuk-tuks can carry up to 4 people. Rides inside the city center are 2 to 3 USD.

Asian Lacquer Craft Exchange Research Project

Lacquer arts is an important Asian cultural heritage The purpose of the Asian Lacquer Craft Exchange Project is to promote natural lacquer arts, crafts, industry, and education throughout Asia. We do this by bringing artists, artisans, educators, and scientists together for seminars, workshops, and art exhibitions. The Project began when members first visited the Bagan Lacquerware Technology College in 2003. Beginning in 2005, yearly workshops and lectures were held by Japanese lacquer experts and artists in order to introduce lacquer art and techniques to the faculty and students of the College and to the Bagan lacquer community as a whole. In 2014 an International Art Exhibition was added to the Program. Since 2016, Programs have been held in Chiang Mai, Hanoi, Bagan, and Yangon.
