As someone noted, make sure you go to the right van phuc as this is not a unique place name. Accessible by grab (and return). We got more or less what was wanted with some materials. Was a bit quiet with a few shops shut...More

I was astounded by how much beautiful cloth could be created by simple wooden looms in a tiny room. So much more wholesome and rewarding than big mechanised machine led operations. The factory owner we visited was really happy with his work.

Well, well well... This place tries (sadely) to survive with the tourist but there not that much left. Far away, surrounded by the constructions, no need of crytal ball to predict its future...

No need to organize in advance. I got chatting with an amputee by the lake and she took me there in the local busses, which is the cheapest way to go. But any taxi will take you there.
