Interesting to see the handicrafts & boats being built

We went there by boat. Good to see boats being made etc... Note your carved Vietmanese figures are much cheaper here than if you buy them in town or at hotels.

This was a side visit on one of our day tours. It was interesting, but not a must-visit. Still quite amazing that this is still how these locals live and work.

Very small and rustic village with woodworking, mother of pearl inlay and boat building places. The handicraft people very lovely and generous with their knowledge and not pushy to make you buy anything. Kids liked wandering around and looking at all the people working. Catch local ferry and just walk around yourself. No tour guide required.
