Visit the traditional silk village of Van Phuc, not far from Hanoi, where the centuries-old craft of silk production has been revived. Learn about silk processing, watch fabric being woven, and browse the shops to see the unique silk products on offer.
What to Expect
On this half-day excursion from Hanoi you’ll be picked up at 08:00 and head to the nearby village of Van Phuc. You’ll travel in an air-conditioned vehicle, accompanied by an English-speaking guide.

Renowned for centuries for its silk production and self-sufficiency, the village has recently seen a revival of interest in its craft as the demand for silk has surged both domestically and internationally.

When you arrive, your guide will show you around the village, stopping to visit the families for whom silk production is their traditional work. You’ll also see the shrines of the village where the first masters are worshipped.

Hear a presentation from a group making silk, learning about the process from the planting of mulberry trees to the processing of silk thread taken from boiled cocoons. At the end of the presentation you’ll have a chance to go shopping for locally made products.
