The handicraft workshop has a performance of local music and dancing every day at 3:00, which is well worth seeing. The workshop itself has a good selection of little shops and you can see people making lanterns, doing embroidery, etc.

We were taken to this shop by the manageress of our hotel because we asked for something unusual to take back home with us. We were completely taken aback at all the goods on the shop, the quality of it and the best thing about it is that it's all hand made. We bought several pairs of cuff links and... More

Lovely to see ancient crafts being worked and the skill involved, especially those silk pictures. There was one of an old woman and the detail of her face was truly amazing. Unfortunately it was too expensive for me to buy.

I didn't think this was very interesting. A lot of items for sale, mostly. Maybe had we caught a performance, it would have been worthwhile.

Great place to see local people working on handicrafts and then you can but examples of the work in the store front operation. Lovely jewellery - next time I hope they will have silver wirework earings like the pendants that they make.

Saw some workers busily woking on their craft. They seem so engrossed in their work that they do not mind you looking over their shoulders. Good stop and also to avoid the scorching heat outside

It's a small place displaying live art creation, not an easy job. The items made were of real food quality and specially the finishing was fantastic, worth visiting.

A chance to watch the artisans in action creating items that you will see in many Hoi An shops. I was humbled by how proudly the stone carving was demonstrated. Ladies in yellow act as personal shoppers and translators which was very useful. We bought heaps here - jewellery, lanterns, hand painted silk robes . We also enjoyed the cultural... More

On the day I went, there were only three artisans at work (lantern making, embroidery and painting), and I felt there was pressure to purchase items. There was no guide explaining the processes, so it just felt like a normal shop, and if not for the show it would have been a waste of an Old Town ticket. There are... More
