However, if you are sitting near the front please be aware that when you use your phone or tablet to record or photograph the performance, not only is it very distracting for those sitting behind you but it can actually block their...

We walked a long way to find the workshop having heard about the good quality items. Unfortunately its a real disappointment. There's not much stock, everything is a bit dusty and tired and very hot. Do yourself a favour and go to the Reaching Out shop down the street. Much better quality, service and beautiful handmade items by people with... More

We watched the performance that were made up of two short dance performances and an opera singing, during which there was a bingo lucky draw session. It gave us a quick idea of their local performance styles that contained foreign influences (eg Thai and Chinese...), seemingly related to village stories. It was a pity that most music was created by... More

This shop and a couple others promote only locally made hand works that reflect their culture. Many items sold are made by disadvantaged people so your purchase helps the local economy and those who need the careers most. Plus they (and your purchase) keeps traditional arts alive. This was my favorite part! My daughter who had seen much more of... More

Hoi An has lots of handicraft made by artisans and makes great gift especially the silk lanterns or money purses made locally. Just walk the streets and or attend a workshop to learn the beautiful art.

We had already been here previously on a tour of Hoi Ann, before this visit. The standard of workmanship is excellent. The place is rammed full of tour groups as well as people coming in off the street. Prices were ok for a range of goods. Nice to be able to support local people who haven't had the easiest start...

The Handicraft Workshop is a different tourist option on the Old Quarter ticket - something that isn't a museum or historical home. My kids made lanterns for $8 AUD/each - it took them quite some time, and the woman was helpful and patient. Other handicrafts are for sale in the gallery as well, including unusual items that you wouldn't find... More
