This Silk Village is really beautiful and the people are so nice. It is nice to see it if you are in Hanoi for 1week. :)

My expectations of visiting the silk village as part of the tour I was on were certainly not met. It seemed to be geared to providing a venue for shopping - fair enough - but some of what was on offer appeared to be cheap reproductions you can find anywhere. There was some nice silk and we did get to... More

We visited the silk village this month and saw some amazing offers for silk ties and pashminas! You just need to check almost every shop in order to find the right quality- really worth the effort going there.

Easy to get there by taxi. Approx 190,000 VND from Hanoi Opera House. Bargain given is takes 30-40mins due to traffic. We fancied just wandering around so didn't book any guides/tours. For our needs it worked well. We got to watch a lady working a loom and then wandered the quiet streets, in and out of shops. Some really lovely... More

More shops and pretty things to buy than anyone could dream of!!! Prices are VERY affordable. I enjoyed the history of silk and watching the looms.

Dont expect to find beautifull silk clothes there. The clothes are not that beautifull and they are not silk. But its the place to find the best silk fabrics ever. Its not that cheap ( the best silk is about 25$ a meter) but still cheaper than in europe. I suggest to come with a lighter so you can check... More

The name is Silk village, so I expected to see a variety of silk fabric. But reality is far from expectation. Nothing much to see, all the shops are selling almost the same items. You need to ask for discount in most of the shops as the shops mark up the price especially to the foreigners. Just 40 minutes drive... More

Nice silks,but most shops all carry same selections, so very repetitive .. The nicer shops were quite expensive & no real bargaining .. Enjoyed seeing silk worms and the looms,but not much else to do. The little park nearby is nice for a wonder.
