We visited as a stop to and from Ha Long Bay. If you are doing this then buy snacks and drinks before you go on the tour rather than shop here. Some Art and crafts items are nice. You get a chance to see the...More

Tour stopped off here on the way back from Ha long Bay. Seemed very commercial and expensive. Lots of arts and crafts would question the authenticity of many of the items though. Fresh spring rolls great value and the drip coffee with condensed milk went...More

Didn't stop here for food. However, we did stop to enjoy the art that was being created, some fantastic pieces. They deliver for a reasonable price. The facilities are not excellent, however, you're more there for the art.

A terrible place designed to rip you off on your way to/return from Halong Bay. Prices are ridiculous and you are have to wear a badge from your bus company - very likely because they get a kick-back if you buy anything there.

If you like supporting people with disabilities and handcrafts this is the place for you! Unfortunately an ATM ate my credit card because I would have purchased an embroidered item. There is jewellery, marble, you name it. I was fascinated to watch the speed with...More
