I visited this village as part of a day tour. We needed to take a boat ride to the village, as it is located on an island. Over here, I visited a few carpentry workshops and witnessed how the locals crafted the various wood carvings. As expected, there were shops selling hand crafted furniture and sculptures. It was a great... More

The history of wood working is strong in this nearby village. Both intricate carvings and ship building are family businesses. Take the local ferry, not the tourist boat. Ride your bike, and visit the island. It is a good chance to visit a non-tourist area, on your own.

Our bike driver took us here..across on the boat. The boat building was great to watch. We then continued on through the countryside. It's an old back in time village for us westerners.

Visited this as part of our day trip to My Son. You get to go up close to the workers as the carve out a huge array of items. If you can think of it they can carve it! There are massive statutes, if that' your thing, but lots of smaller souvenir too. Not too pricey.

A trip by boat gets you here, and that was fun, lots of boats in old town. The village is very nice, and the people actually do the work themselves so its all hand made. You can even buy a handmade boat, and paddle it back to America !

We walked through the village as part of a cycling tour, taking the ferry from the pier at Hoi An Ancient Town. Didn't stay long but their carving skills were top-notch. My guide said years ago a kind old man decided to teach young kids in the village wood-carving in order to bring better livelihood to the people in this... More

We visited the carpentry village as part of a tour so there wasn't enough time to take in the finer details of the crafts people at work, some of the inlay work was exceptional and very interesting to watch being made. Well worth a visit but some more time is needed to experience the workings of the village. Can be... More
