The Hoi An Silk Village, officially opened in August 2012, is based on the ancient silk weaving traditions of Quang Nam province that used Hoi An as a commercial seaport for over 300 years. 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.

It was raining so we decided to do something "inside" and visit the silk village. We were shown around by a friendly lady who explained everything to my inquisitive boys. They were allowed to hold a silk worm (cocoon), help remove the silk from the cocoon and spin the silk. The friendly old men and women were very talkative and... More

Definitely worth a visit. Really interesting to see the whole process of how silk products are made right from worms, to cocoons to spinning it by hand. They also had people doing traditional weaving which was fascinating! They offer a full half day tour including tranfers but we just showed up and they gave us a tour for 100,000 ($6).... More

For anyone who is interested in the history of Vietnam's fashion, this attraction has some great displays of the garments of the major ethnic groups in Vietnam. After sampling mulberry juice, we began a tour of how silk is manufactured. They have several had made machines, keeping the traditions of silk making alive. Naturally, at the end of the tour...

We were then guided around the village learning the materials history, how its made, the effort and skill in weaving their silky magic. Learnt a fair... More

Lovely to see the old skills kept alive, but takes a long time to make some fabric. Beautifully presented property and good value for money.

in Vietnam. Attentive staff and friendly. The silk worm living exhibitions were very well done and extremly informative. We had an excellent guide who spoke good English and made the experience all the better. There is not an awful lot to see around Hoi An but strongly recomend you include this.

This isn't a village as such but an attraction that is worth a visit if you would like to know more about the silk making process. We arrived by bike, about a 10 minute ride from the old town. Entrance is 100,000 dong or about $5. We received a welcome drink of mulberry juice which was lovely then a personalised... More

Exactly as the tittle says! Interesting, easy to get to, yes, they want you to buy stuff, but not too in your face.

if you are staying near the river a little out of town most of the resort shuttle buses use this as a connection point for pick up and drop off, which is very convenient. The silk village is a treat for your senses and a must see.
