  • Too touristic, many little shops, the way there from Hoi An by bicycle is more beautiful than the place itself.
  • Nice compact village, friendly villagers selling their wares. The carpentry carvings weren't to intricate, but the 'Mother of Pearl'inlay carvings were very good
  • Ideal place for people who want to shop
  • Such a great experience to learn local people cultures here as well as to see the process of making such a beautiful handmade traditional crafts :)
