Owner description: 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.

We had no idea how Silk was made and here you can get a really good tour and a close look at how the people make it. You can hire a guide at the entrance who is very knowledgeable and well worth it!

The entrance fee was 100,000vnd per adult and the kids were free. The tour was quite informative and quite well structured. It goes through the life cycle of the silk worm and... More

This is a lovely place to window shop, butt it is pretentious and rediculously overr-priced. Also, the personnel are jaded and impolite. Look, but don't buy!

Great educational activity at very reasonable price. We rode our bikes up here and joined another couple. Great value way to spend an educational afternoon for about 100,000 vnd. Please note though that this is a tourist attraction more than a manufacturing hub, with the way their decor is done and the guides are setup. I wonder how much silk... More
