  • Is a cluster of small shops and open-air stalls, which sell the same things as in the Centre of Hanoi: bathrobes, scarves, blouses. This silk is very little. Mostly synthetic. There are enough cute things from cotton and satin finish (also referred to as silk) with handmade embroidery. It is those things we bought. But immediately evaluate them is difficult, because they hang in the dusty shops, without the dressing on the floor sleeping children. When considering buying a home, they brought in a different light (much nicer). If there is too much time, then you can go. There quite nicely at the inlet and outlet, and between them be ready for regular market better.

  • This visit is not to prioritize if you stay any time in Hanoi. Very commercial place, all the shops are not reliable. However, there are a few old trades to weave in accessible service for free, but all say that in 15 minutes you've seen it all!

  • This Silk Village is really beautiful and the people are so nice. It is nice to see it if you are in Hanoi for 1week. :)  more »
