“Had a good time”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We enjoyed the boat trip to this village and we were quite surprised once we got there. Bought some superb wooden souvenirs from a craftsman. It is a very quiet village away from the noisy city, that will give you a peace of mind, and you will learn something about their way of living. We enjoyed the fact that we got the opportunity to see the making of rice paper some woodcarving and other attraction. The village itself it’s not something spectacular but it’s unique in its own kind.

“Town after a boat trip”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Via boat we arrived in the very quiet town, we stopped at the boathouse were the were buidling traditional boats all from wood. It was nice to see how they make the boats. We wandered around the town, not much to see and left again with the boat.

“It was ok”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

This place is more about selling things to you than actually teaching you anything about their way of life. This might be because of our guide but i don't really recommend this.

“Great morning trip”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Went to this village with Hoi An free tours (Uni students). Took ferry across to island and spent a leisurely morning cycling through the village to see boat building, weaving, rice paper making, woodcarving, field workers and tomb.
