“Watch the cultural concert”

Hoi An Handicraft Workshop
Ranked #35 of 131 things to do in Hoi An
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 13, 2014

There is local music, singing and dancing in colourful costumes in the concert. Be there early to get a good seat in front of the stage (like we did).

There are also lanterns galore to see and buy if you want to (we did not buy any as we would not have any use for any - much prefer LED modern lighting these days).

We did this as the last clip on our Hoi An city ticket, and I think it was worth it. If you time it right you can see a cultural performance (singing and dancing) which was more enjoyable that I expected - actually, I would say it's worth the clip if you include the performance. It is essentially a big souvenier shop but at least you get to see them make the lanterns, pottery etc and the building is quite cool (go upstairs and have a nosy!).

There's a Vietnamese tradtional music concert at 10:15 daily - a must-see in Hoi An given that it doesn't cost anything other than an Old Town ticket. The production values aren't great but it's fun and not too long (less than 30 mins).
However, if you're not there when the concert is on it's not worth using a ticket to go in - it's just a shop.

The products here are lovely - a bit different from the other shops in Hoi An and definitely worth a visit.

A bit of a con. Nice enough building but on entry you are immediately accosted and marched round various handicraft outlets with expectation that you will buy. Yes there are 1 or 2 artisans making pottery, lampshades or embroidering but we suspect what you buy is mass produced elsewhere. Actually the stall and shopkeepers who urge you to look at their wares around the town are at least being open and honest .
