My expectations of visiting the silk village as part of the tour I was on were certainly not met. It seemed to be geared to providing a venue for shopping - fair enough - but some of what was on offer appeared to be cheap...More

We visited the silk village this month and saw some amazing offers for silk ties and pashminas! You just need to check almost every shop in order to find the right quality- really worth the effort going there.

Easy to get there by taxi. Approx 190,000 VND from Hanoi Opera House. Bargain given is takes 30-40mins due to traffic. We fancied just wandering around so didn't book any guides/tours. For our needs it worked well. We got to watch a lady working a...More

The name is Silk village, so I expected to see a variety of silk fabric. But reality is far from expectation. Nothing much to see, all the shops are selling almost the same items. You need to ask for discount in most of the shops...More

Nice silks,but most shops all carry same selections, so very repetitive .. The nicer shops were quite expensive & no real bargaining .. Enjoyed seeing silk worms and the looms,but not much else to do. The little park nearby is nice for a wonder.

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.
