This tour takes you to the outskirts of Hue, to visit the villages of Thanh Tien and Sinh. Our guide will meet you at your hotel and bring you to the boat landing either by car or by foot depending on the location of your hotel. You can relax and enjoy a gentle cruise downstream.
You will drift by the Dong Ba Market located by the Hen islet and arrive at the Sinh Handicraft Village where you will be greeted by the charming Ky Huu Phuoc and his wife. Ky Huu Phuoc is one of the few artisans left working in this craft. He is delighted to demonstrate to you this craft of creating prints in an age old style.
You will be invited to create a print of your own Chinese Horoscope sign as you learn about the painstaking preparation of the handmade paper, glaze made from shells out of the river, paint tinted by natural colorings and even hand-made paint brushes from local bushes. You have this treasured opportunity of meeting and spending time with the best of the remaining local artisans still working in this ancient trade and, if you choose to, purchasing some of the creations to take home with you as momentum. We then take our bicycles to visit the neighboring village of Thanh Tien.
This village is famous for its handcrafted paper flowers, especially the traditional flower of Vietnam - the Lotus. These flowers are just beautiful and made with such care and precision. After your stay at Thanh Tien, we will continue on our ride through the local paddy fields and pastures where you can enjoy the beauty of the local scenery and see locals going about their daily activities of wet rice cultivation and flower gardening.
Have lunch at local restaurant.
In the afternoon, continue to visit another craft village
Phu Cam (also Phuoc Vinh) hat-making Village lies on the southern bank of the An Cuu River in the centre of the former imperial capital of Hue. It`s a village famous for its traditional way of making conical hats for hundreds of years.
Phu Cam hats look graceful, soft and thin as silk. Hue landscapes or even poems can be seen clearly through the hats in the sunshine. It takes women much time to make the frame and iron leaves before young girls start sewing. The beauty and grace of a hat is much depended on the frame (made of 16 brims from the hem to the top). Artisans use sharp knives to prepare the brims and make the frame that needs skills, techniques and experiences, as well as mathematical calculations which have been handed down for generations.
“Poem-hat” (Non Bai Tho) is a distinctive feature of culture in Hue. Locals say they like to do the job not only to earn money but to preserve their age-old tradition as poem-hats have been absorbed into folk music and songs. Today, hats are still used by young girls to shade their heads in the sun and to make them look more graceful in the traditional Ao Dai (long dress).
We complete the day with a car journey back to Hue and to your hotel.
HAVE A NICE TRIP!
