Van Phuc Silk Village Tours

star-2.5

Van Phuc Silk Village
Dating back more than 1,200 years, Van Phuc Silk Village is undoubtedly the best-known and best-developed of Vietnam’s designated craft villages. More than 700 households here are involved in silk production, and more than 100 shops sell silk clothing and decorative items. Even if you’re not looking to buy, this is a great place to see how silk is produced. 

The Basics 
You can visit Van Phuc Silk Village independently or join a half- or full-day excursion from Hanoi. The express option, which includes convenient round-trip transport from your Hanoi hotel, will appeal to time-pressed visitors, while full-day trips are a great choice for travelers seeking more information about Vietnam’s past and present. Day trips tend to combine Van Phuc Silk Village with a stop at Phu Tay Ho, one of the city’s most revered Buddhist temples. 

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • Van Phuc Silk Village is the ideal place to pick up souvenirs for friends and family.
  • Educational silk-making demonstrations and colorful shops make the village a great place to take the kids. 
  • Van Phuc silk is known for its smooth appearance and light weight, making it cool in the summer yet warm in winter.
  • Some shop owners in Van Phuc Silk Village speak a little English and French, so be prepared to bargain for the best price. 
  • Visitors usually find that a few hours is enough time to enjoy the village. 

How to Get There 
Travelers can visit Van Phuc on their own by renting a car or motorbike or by catching bus 2 or 21, then walking for 10 minutes to reach the village. In order to save time and skip the stress of vehicle rental, most visitors opt to join a tour that includes round-trip transport. 

When to Get There
Van Phuc Silk Village is open daily between 8am and 10pm. Early morning or late evening is best if you want to avoid the crowds. 

The Craft Villages of Hanoi 
Compared to the rest of the country, Northern Vietnam has a high concentration of craft villages, where visitors can observe manufacturing processes and buy goods at a fraction of the price they would fetch in the city. Easily accessible from Hanoi are Day Bat Trang pottery village, where you can take part in a ceramics class, and Day Dong Ho, famous for its folk paintings.
