Highlights of Hoi An, a Silk Master Village and Lunch - Da Nang - 2018 ( 7 Hours 30 Minutes )
Da Nang, Vietnam | 18 Nov 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Today our guide will meet us at the Tian Sa port, where we will board a coach and transfer to Hoi An. A UNESCO world heritage site, Hoi An was a major Asian trading port in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and its architecture and relaxed lifestyle have changed little over the years.

This morning, we will enjoy Hoi An ancient town from different perspective. After a short cyclo ride, we’ll sit down for a conversation with a member of Hoi An Relics Conservation Center for an insight into Hoi An culture. Due to its protected status, the ancient town Hoi An is well-preserved, with some streets off-limits to motorbikes and building alterations well enforced. Then, we’ll walk around the ancient town with our tour guide, visiting old merchants’ houses with influences from Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese architecture. Some of the sites we’ll see include the 400-year-old Japanese Covered Bridge, and ancient temples with remarkable wood carvings.

Lunch will be served at HOME Hoi An – a Vietnamese restaurant reflecting the spectacular cuisine of the charming city, set in a French townhouse with a warm and elegant setting. As the riverside town was once a major port under French rule of Vietnam, the influences of French traders and the culture brought along with them has become part of Hoi An heritage. Some of the historical sites include hundred-year-old French private residences.

After lunch, we’ll visit Silk Master village, located on the border of Hoi An Ancient town. We’ll visit a traditional house, where we will have the opportunity to listen to the story of Lady Doan Thi Ngoc, known as the Queen of “Tam Tang”, who was the founder of the sericulture craft in Quang Nam province. Then, we’ll visit the ancient Champa Mulberry Garden, and stop at a silkworm breeding house to learn how to feed the unique creatures and see their cocoons. Lastly, we’ll discover traditional textures, and learn to make traditional handicrafts before stopping at the showroom, where our guide will enlighten us on the difference between pure and artificial silk.

At the end of the day, we’ll re-board the coach to transfer back to the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Comfortable, casual wear with walking shoes are recommended. There will be a healthy amount of walking through the ancient town of Hoi An, on mostly paved or cobblestone surfaces.
