    Van Phuc Silk Village
    Stop: 4 minutes - Admission included
    We will pick you up from your hotel for a 45-minute car ride heading North-West of Ha Noi to Van Phuc Silk Village. This well-known village is traditionally associated with silk weaving in Ha Dong. The craft of silk weaving was started over 1000 years ago in Van Phuc and remains a rich tradition to this day. This village is located on the bank of Nhue river with the main gate named “Van Phuc Village”. You will take a peaceful stroll and enjoy an ancient view of a Northern Vietnamese village, with communal houses, fish ponds and ancient banyan trees all alongside modern houses. Then, we will visit the families for whom silk production is a way of life. Watch as we learn the stages of producing handmade silk: from spinning and gluing, through weaving and finishing of the silk wares. Afterwards, we will visit the shrines of the village where the first masters are worshipped. The patterns are always decorated with the symentrical ways. The decorated features are soft, generous and delicate. Mostly patterns are designed and drawn as per the emulation of objects, animals, and other shapes. Therefore, Van Phuc silks are interested not only in land but also beyond the territory of Vietnam. This tour is a great chance to shop for silk products at reasonable prices before heading back to Ha Noi.
