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.

A well presented and interesting overview of silk production. The guides and 'workers' were friendly and very well presented. A pleasant surprise was the absence of pressure to purchase at the shop at the conclusion of the tour.

Dragged my husband and daughter along to this who weren't expecting too much, but they both thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We had individual attention from our tour guide despite taking a fair bit longer than the average 45 mins. My husband ended up ordering a pure silk jacket tailor made for a fraction of the cost it would be at... More

I arrived by myself and was met by a lovely girl who showed me around the complex. We started with mulberry juice and the national costumes of Vietnam. It is like a working museum, you could touch everything and ask as many questions as you like. We saw the caterpillars, the pupae, the moths, the weaving by hand and by... More

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
