Hoi An 2016 - Kim Bong Carpentry Village
As part of the My Son day tour, we got to visit Kim Bong Carpentry Village which is on an island off Hoi An. Being a trading port with lots of seafarers - the residents around Hoi An are also great boat builders. They still build boats - but with the blossoming of tourism, wood carvings have become a lucrative side business for them.
The woodcarvers at Kim Bong are very skillful and some of their handiwork is quite amazing.
