I was looking forward to seeing how lacquer is done because I am an artist. I came here with a shore excursion from a cruise ship. After 90 minutes on a bus from port, we stopped here and were not allowed to use the bathroom...More
We visited the gallery while on a tour with Wendy Wu. The workshop was very interesting and the gallery was was full of beautiful lacquer ware.
We decided to buy two tables and paid for them to be shipped home to the UK.
Mostly done by hand, what a lot of work! No wonder the prices are high! It was fun watching the artists working at their craft, but I can't imagine squatting all day working like this! Showroom was very nice, but nothing is cheap!
one of the typical merchant tours that are usually just a chance to get you to buy stuff, this one was somewhat interesting as I’ve always thought lacquer boxes were nice. These are above average quality as they use more layers of lacquer which preserves...More
Enjoyed see the lacquer gallery and process used. No machines all hand created products. The show room is spectacular even if you don't care for lacquer art. You can negotiate if you find something you like. They also have silk and jewelry products.
This was the usual - see how they make it and then buy the produce! The lacquer ware was actually very nice and although I don't usually buy from these tourist traps, I did buy 3 pieces as I thought the quality was good and...More
As lacquer ware goes, these things look very nice. But I don’t know that they really translate when you take them back home. The sales people were not pushy which was very nice and this large store is air-conditioned.
Bought a vase at USD154, which I thought was expensive but went ahead since the service personnel was pretty polite and I desperately needed a vase that size for my plants.
The packing was fantastic I must say. Brought it back home to Singapore and...More
I spent about 40 minutes here as part of a tour. A short explanation of the process followed by some time spent in the gallery where a range of lacquerware was on display for purchase. Prices ranged from around $10 to whatever you were prepared...More

we spent USD410 on a small bowl, a large plate, a med size picture, a large vase and a wine bottle stand and a few little items all of which was beautifully wrapped and travelled well as checked in luggage without breakage. you can find cheaper in gift shops but not of the same quality. the small items are cheap (less than USD25) it may be cheaper now as the Viet exchange to USD is high. ps don't buy currency outside Vietnam as it's much cheaper doing local exchange. check the rate before you go. They accept all cards inc AMEX so you don't need to go to the ATM

The Showroom has an extensive range of gift ware and home wares ranging from bowls, platters, vases, trays, place mats, boxes with lids, to items of furniture including tables, chairs, dressers, wall dividers. Many of the smaller items are made in varying sizes so that a collection can be purchased, for example, three bowls with the same design. The walls are covered with pictures paintings and other art works. To one side is an area where jewellery is sold.
