Watch silk weavers and silk dyers in Van Phuc Silk Village, on the banks of Nhue River. Explore various shops with colorful shiny patters and take a pleasant stroll under banyan trees. Listen to the sound of power and manual looms making traditional weaving and premium silk products and take a close up view of silk worms and their cocoons. Boasting a tradition of over 1,200 years which clothed Vietnamese royal families, this is one of the best developed and most visited craft villages of 90 such villages near the capital.

  • 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...  more »
  • This was just another commercial outlet, nothing unique about it. If in the area, worth a visit but do not expect anything authentic.  more »
  • We traveled from the center of Hanoi bus N 1. Very convenient route, go for about 40 minutes. A bus stop can be reached on foot in 10 minutes, or go one stop to the 57 bus. The village itself was only called village, actually this is a district of Hanoi with the market stylized under the village. Plenty of different dealers the same clothes of varying quality. Normal things you can choose, but resemble will have. Focusing on one of the previous reviews, went to the bench "Vietnamese silk for the Russians. In this shop you can find things to fit Russian size 44-46. Friendly seller, which is unusual for Vietnam, knows Russian, you can bargain with them in their native language. Bought Pajamas for 300 to VND, skirt and tunic cashmere Scarfs all of excellent quality. Photo this store put under review. Phuong linh silk in store prices are fixed, a product of high quality. There are linen, silk and products from other tissues.
