Kim Bong (Carpentry Village) Tours

Kim Bong (Carpentry Village)
Kim Bồng carpentry village is located within the Cẩm Kim commune in Hoi An. Since the 16th century, the village has been known for its carpentry and traditional woodworking products, the results of which can be found within prominent buildings across the region and beyond. 

The style of Kim Bồng carpentry is said to be influenced by the Cham Kingdom, China, Japan, and of course local Vietnamese artisans. The craftspeople here all begin as apprentices, earning the rank of masters only by years of hard work and dedication. The work being produced in the village can largely be divided into three main categories: ancient architectural construction, civil wooden furniture, and shipbuilding. In addition, many of the artisans have more recently shifted their focus to the recovery of historical monuments and relics, especially traditional ancient houses around Hoi An.

Today, bicycle tours of the village are common, allowing visitors to pass through streets lined with open-fronted workshops and witness the artisans at work. Visitors are also able to purchase items produced in the village at its various souvenirs shops, which sell everything from small, low-cost items, such as coasters, to huge expensive pieces, such as religious statues and intricately crafted wooden doors.

Practical Info

Kim Bồng village is around a 10-minute boat ride from Hoi An Old Town. There is no entrance fee to enter.
Address: Cam Kim commune, Hoi An, Central Vietnam, Vietnam
Admission: Dependent on tour
