Tour Code: DAD-09 Duration: Approx 4 Hours

Take a trip to Thanh Ha and Kim Bong - each with traditional occupations with over 500 years of age!

  • Come to Kim Bong Carpentry Village to learn how the Sophisticated Wooden Products come to life
  • Have a look at Hoi An’s Architecture History, Especially During the 16th and 17th Century

Tour Description:

Enjoy the morning scenery as you walk to Hoi An’s port to get on your boat and start the tour to explore two traditional villages. The first stop is Thanh Ha pottery village. Thanh Ha has over 500 years of history in its traditional occupation. The villagers made the pottery using the traditional ways: hand-building clay (no moulds whatsoever is used to shape the product), no glaze and baking clay by a traditional wooden stove. Another unique feature about the village is that the villagers don’t use any devices to measure the temperature in the stove, but they base on the experience passed down by the elders. Experience is also the only thing they use to mix the clay, and different colours of the finished product are the result of the difference in temperature while baking. Explore more interesting facts when you come and observe the work of the locals yourself, and maybe buy a small souvenir as a remembrance of the village that makes most of Hoi An’s bricks and tiles.

Get back on the boat and head to another traditional village. Just like Thanh Ha, this village’s business bloomed around the 16th or 17th century, when Hoi An became a prominent international port. Another thing these two villages share is a significant contribution to make Hoi An as it is today. It is Kim Bong carpentry village - the village that has left its mark on many of Hoi An’s old buildings, famous for its wooden pieces of furniture and ships. Kim Bong’s beautiful and sophisticated is not sold widely on the market though - as one single work takes a lot of time and hard work. You will have the chance to observe how all those sophisticated wooden products come to life: from the small and sophisticated decorations to the big and steady ships that are meant to sail in the ocean. Go back to Hoi An by boat and enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant as the tour is reaching its end.
