Located down the street from Hoi An's town center, the Silk Village offers an experience like no other. During the tour you'll learn about the entire production of silk from silkworm to dress. We also have a spacious restaurant serving up local delights and a high-end silk showroom where you can have custom garments designed. « less

Had a tour with a lovely lady who showed us from start to finish the journey of the silk worm to cocoon to silk. Such a long process for the pure silk. Interesting to know how to tell the diff between real silk and mixes with silk.

Very friendly staff. they explain in detail how silk is produced and manufactured. No pressure to buy anything. For our kids it was a wonderful and exciting experience to learn where fabric/silk comes from. We would come again!

Great morning. Do yourself a favour and visit. Learnt about silk, the silk grub, tested the silk and even tried a puppa. Excellent value. Biked there via the back route through the rice fields - shown on google earth, this was great too.

It is worth a visit just to see how silk is actually made. It is a painstaking job but the end result is wonderful. After seeing this you would never buy silk scarves/shawls in the market places where the scarves are disguised polyester and cotton rather than the pure silk. They show you how to distinguish what is fake and... More

The walk in tour (with an English speaking guide) is reasonably priced, only VND100,000 for adults and half price for kids. This will take you through the entire silk making process - very educational and informative. You get to see the real process and not just videos or static photos. Of course it is a little commercialized. The end point... More

We visited Silk Village in the early morning of Jun 10, 2014. The place is interesting with nice wooden houses, a large garden with a lot of mulberry trees. There was a silkworm farm on the side of the garden. Through about half an hour visiting the place we could learn a lot about how silk was made. The only... More

The Silk Village is located 28 Nguyen Tat Thanh Street just outside Old Town. It worth a visit just to see how silk is made. If you want to escape the heat than spending some time to watch the wooden looms working is rather fascinating. The Silk Village was opened in August 2012. The guides lecture & teach you about...

Our tour guide was a lady named Phuong who we found to be very informative and patient. Not a long tour(thank god in this heat) but we saw the whole silk process. We found it nice to be greeted with mulberry juice and even got the opportunity to eat a silk worm pupae! We had already planned to buy small... More

Not on our intrepid tour but read about it on trip advisor. Cycled down from our hotel, greeted by lovely guide and refreshed with mulberry juice under the shade area before my husband and I had our own tour from the old house with national costumes on to the trees and where the silk worms were busy chewing their way...

this is amazing to watch how silk is made, yes it is a bit touristy with them trying to sell you things all the way through but a simple no suffices at each stage.
