He was much more stunned with my phone casing than I was stunned with his carpentry. My casing had lots of imitation gemstones and he thought that the phone casing was worth millions.

Either a short 10 min ferry ride or on the end of a tour, we did the my son sanctuary first. If you like seeing people use real carving and carpentry skills from fishing boats to in laying shells etc, it is worth the look. An hour is plenty there. No hard sell, fair prices. The usual street vendors, you... More

We did the free bike tour which visited this village. We did lots of activities and everyone as very nice, especially the rice noodle lady. I was impressed when all the prices at the souvenir shop at the end were great prices compared to the prices of the shops in the old quarter.

Visited the village, and the guide brought us into the carpenter workshop and see them working on the wood carvings, as well as selling alot of local souvenirs. Good to pick up some but quite pricey over there.

Catch any one of the many boats chasing your business and take a trip over the Cam kim island to the carpentry village, and pick up some great wooden gifts the wooden toys are amazing and all beautifully made from mahogany.Or just watch as they work on the boats.

Nice to see the craftsmen at work in various shops, but there was less to see than I had expected. Still a nice trip across by boat. The regular ferry leaves just before you reach the market, to the left of where the tourist boats try to tout you. We paid 50.000 dong for 2 persons plus 2 bikes (one... More

We came here to visit one of the carpentry shops and take a class. There are beautiful woodwork creations and it is interesting to learn the history of this island and woodworking in Vietnam.
