  • Want to see the countryside on the outskirts of Hanoi-and is this silk village called bang in the middle reach of Dong Lam Village, introduced the Lam Village day tour to react. Did not see most tourists is a small town lined with shops for silk products. Step-by-step process is the silk from the cocoon of the silkworm, Bombyx Mori, had described watching the real thing. Japan until just a few decades ago, is a lot like weaving, Thumper and sound, while people are weaving silk, I was with I-, and megurasemashita desire. People after touring the mills, silk products of the adjacent souvenir shop. It's not a hard sell but not perfectly stick people, haunting feel. But like framed was made even less exorbitant pricing, go home and decorate with silk and half bought a meter at a time. I think's can be purchased in the city other than writing, but many tourists buy more affordable.
