Past its true history disappointing really

The history sounds like you will encounter great woodcarving. in reality there is one wood shop, with some nice stuff but that is it. sad.

Craftsmen & Wares in Traditional Village
Mar 2019
Gate 1 Tours arranged this enjoyable trip up the Thu Bon River by boat, to Kim Bon Village from Hoi An. Numerous local craftsmen & artisans sell their carvings and wares from within their working studios. Here I located well-made items to bring home for gifts and for myself. We walked the village streets and visited the open-air food market, where we were introduced to fruit we had never before seen nor tasted. We also visited a location along the river near where we had docked, and saw the building of a traditional boat, passing livestock in pens on a farm along the way. Very interesting & pleasant Vietnamese village experience.

Good place to visit as part of a tour

We visited as part of a bike tour and would recommend this is the way to go with a guide explaining what was going on and visiting some of the artisans. I don't think you would get much out of it on your own. Interesting place to see the crafts.

Enjoyable visit - nice arts and crafts
Nov 2019
I visited here while on a half-day boat ride on the Thu Bon River. We stopped at a boat yard and saw ship-building that was quite interesting because of the craft involved and the approaches they were using to construct the boats. We also saw young men learning to carve and stopped at a place where many wooden arts and crafts were made and also available for purchase. It was an interesting stop and I enjoyed it. I showed me a side of life in the area that I had not seen previously.

You can take a boat here from Hoi An hotel up the river. Interesting local shops, houses, and food market. Just walk around and enjoy the countryside.

Not much to see
Aug 2019
We went there and the place was tiny. Or at least the carpentry attraction area. We walked thru and the 1st shop keeper was super friendly. He invited us and let us do some amateur carving on small wood block. He showed his work and told us how long it takes to make a sculpture. The craftsmen are poor as wood sculpting is not a sustainable business. But they still worked hard with a happy heart. We helped out by purchasing an item from his shop.

Really interesting!
Aug 2019
You can wander in and out of the different shops/work areas and actually watch the artisans as work. It was so interesting to see all of the intricate detail in the carving and to see the different steps they take to create their masterpieces. You can also buy right there from the actual people that create the works of art, Thoroughly enjoyed this!

Just fair

A stop on the riverboat trip. They mainly do carpentry work in the village including boat repairs. The market was the best thing to see.
