We took the ferry across with our guide then cycled around the village visiting a number of different families who demonstrated their skills at making ricepaper pancakes, bamboo boats etc. It was great fun exploring the area despite the rain which didn't dampen our spirits but just meant we had to don out ponchos for the first time on the...

Really great place. Get to watch the talented carpenters at work and buy their wares. We got a lot of great gifts from here. Also, pretty shady and cool.

Very small, untidy bordering on dirty. From what saw most items for purchase were overpriced. I was taken to the island as part of a tour group on our return from My Son tour and would not have bothered end otherwise.

It was a very short visit to the carpentry village. I was really impressed by the skill and the fact that probably everything that you can buy in Vietnam, made out of wood, is handmade and not factory production.

We really enjoyed watching the young men and women carving various statues. Remember to ask before taking photos of themselves- some are very shy.
