Van Phuc Silk Village is situated on the banks of Nhue Thi River, 8 km southwest of Ha Noi. It takes you only 30 minutes drive to go there from the centre of Hanoi. The village has been much well known for its traditional sericulture, weaving, and silk products. Tourists coming here are lured by various beautiful shirts, crafts, ties, dresses and many other things made of silk available in the village. What is special is that the silk is made by very simple looms, which is the genuinely traditional Vietnamese way of making silk. Listen to a presentation of the process of making silk - from planting mulberry trees to processing thread taken from boiled cocoon. Afterwards, you may go shopping at village shops.
