Cam Thanh to teach visitors craft skills
Update: Mar 18, 2015
A tour that teaches guests traditional crafts has been launched in Cam Thanh Village near Hoi An City.

Tour operator Vo Tan Tan said tourists could take classes to learn how to make bamboo souvenirs.

"We show them all the stages of making bamboo toys and souvenirs. They can select different models they want to make from VND150,000 (US$7) to VND300,000 ($14)," Tan said.

Tan said he had a display of bamboo products and tools for tourists to use at his house, and guests could take home their creations after the tour.

Tourists can visit the village by bicycle on a 5km ride from Hoi An to Thanh Tam Dong Hamlet in Cam Thanh Village.

The craftsman also produces bicycles made from 50 per cent bamboo, including the frame, handle-bars, mud-guard and chain-guard.
