About
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.

Absolutely worth it! Started with an ice cold Mulberry welcome drink in the most beautiful setting ever. Completely fascinating tour of will production from start to finish. I had loved breeding silk worms in my childhood but never appreciated the intricate processes involved. Thoroughly appreciated the hard work these ladies put into their trade. The goods in the gift store were phenomenal! We had the loveliest guide, who spoke beautiful English and felt absolutely no pressure to make any purchases but oh boy...we bought a lot! Too difficult to choose and very affordable prices. Would highly recommend.

We had a complimentary 30 min guided tour of the Silk Village as we we’re staying in sister resort - Mulberry Silk Eco.
Our guide was wonderful, she spoke English well and opened our eyes to the silk making process from worm to fine fabric. We listened to live 21 day old worms noisily eating Mulberry leaves, we watched the fragile web from their boiling cocoons being extracted by hand and spun into fine thread and finally, we saw the thread being woven into silk fabric by foot powered looms.
Seeing the spinning machine and looms in action was truly impressive.
A wonderful way to spend 30 minutes.

We did the tour around the museum. The guide was really knowledgeable and it was a really interesting tour. Would recommend this as something to do in Hoi An for a couple of hours 😊

We did the 1/2 day tour, just the 3 of us. We were picked up from our accommodation and from the moment we arrived the experience started. We were met and had time to sit and drink mulberry juice before a very informative and hands on couple of hours. Thư Mion was a fabulous guide and allowed us plenty of time to have hands on experiences from picking leaves to feed the silk worms to weaving on a traditional loom. Yes we did buy some silk items from the onsite shop but at no time did we feel pressured to do this. We finished the tour with a delicious lunch. If you enjoy traditional practices and history this is a tour you will enjoy. It was informative and a quiet, calm tour.

If you are like me and are thinking this is similar to the pottery village it is not. We drove our motorbikes to this out of town ‘village’ expecting to find something similar to the pottery village. It’s a hotel resort and upon arriving we were told the only way we were going to be allowed in was with a chauffeur. So, this is a non destination unless you’re staying there.

Plenty to buy but nothing of value. Crappy restaurants, cheesy merchants. Unless you have money to waste, steer clear.

We were greeted with a welcome drink, then taken through a personalized tour of the silk making process. The best part was that we were encouraged to participate in the labor intensive process of pulling silk from the cocoons and hand spooling those into skeins, followed by the labor intensive weaving process. We were introduced to a lovely Chama tribal couple who wove the silk threads into cloth. Lunch was included and was delicious.

We had the pleasure of doing the long tour with Miss Huong and it was excellent! Miss Huong was such a great guide, with great English and she really knew what she was talking about. We went through the process of making silk from worms to silk threads and we even picked mulberry leaves to feed to the silk worms. It was all a very interesting experience and Miss Huong made the experience even better. After the tour we were served a super delicious lunch, actually some of the best food we had in Vietnam. Plus we got a free taxi home, all in all, a fantastic deal. We definitely recommend that you book the long tour and hopefully you'll be lucky enough to have Miss Huong as a tour guide.

We went to silk village by taxi. Arrived there announced, but got nicely greeted. Decided on a short guided tour of the village. It took around 45 min to see everything. It was interesting for children and for us adults to see the whole process and silkworms at work. There is also a nice store, where you can buy silk clothes. They are fairly priced.

It was very interesting to observe traditional methods of producing silk, you can see alive silkworms eating mulberry leaves and all the next stages of production, it was an interesting visit, you can easily get there by bike and pay for the entrance 150000 vnd, which is much cheaper than organised trip from hotel.
