A light trip after discovering My Son Sanctuary. It is fun to see the workmanship to carve all by hand and creat the beautiful things from wood and sell. We booked a joined trip with a raisonable price, and it is worthly for a full day visit in Hoi An. We never got bored each time come back this small... More

We visited Kim Bong carpentry village as part of a tour that included a boat cruise on the Thu Bon River. The village itself was pretty quiet and peaceful when we visited in early November. There were some woodworkers carving and they were fun to watch. I thought that the formal shops had more quality items and greater variety than... More

We happened to visit it as part of our My Son Tour. We didn't attend any workshops, just walked around. It was interesting to see how they do the woodwork in an old school manner. It is not one of our particular interests so we didn't quite appreciate the skill behind it, but was interesting to see them work, nonetheless.

It was an interesting visit but lots of tourists go to the same place, so it becomes crowded at times. On this type of visit you see so much that looks the same from one area to the next. After a while, it all becomes too much.

We visited the village as part of a tour with hoi an mates. We went to a shop where they sell many different and diverse carvings. Most are done in a local style and will interest people who like asian designs. At the side of the shop there were 5 young men who were all hand carving different objects. It... More
