We love Hoi An - the beach, the markets, the food but we were looking for a different diversion. The boat trip down to the Carpentry Village and then the casual saunter around the various manufacturers was a great experience. The kids enjoyed the wander and the places were a great place for photographs. Enjoyable.

Great way to see how boats are built using traditional methods (with the help of a few modern tools) Even the electric band saw they use to make boards out of the logs was really interesting to see. Get a good sense of the old world methods of making boats and Hoi An Free Tours takes you there to explain everything.

It was great to watch the workers in action and then given the chance to try carving yourself. The locals are very helpful

We came by boat after visiting Thanh Ha pottery village.We went to two places here, the first was where the original carpenter had won National prizes for his carpentry pieces which were quite exquisite. Lots of touristy items for sale. The second was where they made mother of pearl inlaid items. It was very interesting to see how it is done. Very painstaking work.
Not a 'must see' place but it is another thing to do in Hoi An.
