Craft Villages

The carpentry village of Kim Bong belongs to the Cam Kim commune, just on the other side of Hoi An river. Take a boat trip on Thu Bon River to visit Thanh Ha & Kim Bong handicraft Villages.

The fishing Village Thanh Nam (also called Con Chai) is shaped by the beautiful Thu Bon River. Fishermen have come here for a long time to cast their nets and catch prawns, crabs and fish.

Just half a kilometre up the road from the Tomb of Tani Yajirobei is the Tra Que Vegetable Farm, a community of people who grow a wide variety of veggies and herbs in the rich soil at the top of the rice field.

Pottery is not just a significant and traditional craft in Vietnam, but also an important means of livelihood. The Thanh Ha Pottery Village in Hoi An is a famous example in this type of an establishment that aims at furthering tradition as well as employment.
