Despite many traditional handicrafts diminished by the advance of technology, Hoi An still has some handicrafts in different villages that contain culture, history and a local taste of art. This trip is to visit some of the historical artifacts along the bank of Thu Bon River such as to witness the processes of creating pottery, carpentry, carving, mats, rice paper and rice wine…
Start 8:30 am / 2:00pm: A local guide and car will pick you up and transfer you to Bach Dang quay. Here, board the boat and head up Thu Bon River to Thanh Ha pottery village where almost half of the villagers still retain their ancestor’s craft skills of creating pots, dishes, jars and other ornaments. Then the boat will transport you down the river to the other side to visit Kim Bong village .It is here the artisans hugely contributed to building ancient wooden houses in Hoi An in the 18th century as well as charming wooden furniture and décor. In this vicinity you will stroll to a family that produces rice wine. You will then continue down the river to Tra Nhieu, a beautiful quaint fishing village at the mouth of Cam Kim Island. Here, take a walk deep into the village and visit a family to learn about mat making. A return walk back to the boat dock and a cruise to Hoi An will complete your trip.
