Nice to walk around, boat across was also pleasant and gives a good perspective on Hoi An. All the hawking - also in Hoi An wasn't
I visited the Carpentry village in early November and was amazed at being able to view quality works being made by hand by such skilled craftmen. I get frustrated when tourists review such places as being commercial. Hello? What do you expect them to do, give away their work? When you go there you are allowed to take photos, watch... More

Via boat we arrived in the very quiet town, we stopped at the boathouse were the were buidling traditional boats all from wood. It was nice to see how they make the boats. We wandered around the town, not much to see and left again with the boat.
Went to this village with Hoi An free tours (Uni students). Took ferry across to island and spent a leisurely morning cycling through the village to see boat building, weaving, rice paper making, woodcarving, field workers and tomb.
If you have travelled around Hoi An not that much to see as such but sad to think this tradition could die out. We went on half day free bike tour which is a good way to see the village
Worth a short visit. Its a little bit commercial with genuine artisans and carpenters going about their work. Each with their own shops that sometimes stock the same things you see everywhere. The trip there and back to Hoi An takes you through some beautiful calm river scenes.
