Dive into the charming Hoi An (B)

The boat takes us to Kim Bong carpentry village that established in the 15th century. After a century, Kim Bong was known for home appliances and shipbuilding products. The village is no longer known for those products because skillful craftsmen now make handicraft products that meet the market demands. The next stop is Thanh Ha Pottery village which is formed in the 16th century and is the oldest in Vietnam. we’ll visit a local home on the outskirts of Hoi An to learn about the family’s long tradition of lantern-making and have our welcome dinner afterward. Next, visit a Japanese Covered Bridge which was first constructed in the 1590s by linking it with the Chinese quarters. Following Tran Phu street, we will get to The Assembly Halls. There are 4 Assembly Halls in Hoi An, each of those Halls belongs to a Chinese community that has its own beliefs, different assembly halls worship different gods and goddesses. Before heading to our last stop- Phuc Thanh Pagoda, make sure we have time to see the vibrant market and ancient port to taste the rhythm of local daily life.
