76 Reviews

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.

Turning Bio-Waste into Useful Resources - Sustainable Tour

Turning Bio-Waste into Useful Resources - Sustainable Tour

In 2019, Hoi An citizens and visiting tourists produced an average of 102 tons of waste each day. And it quickly exceeds the limited capacity of available landfill sites. Government policy combined with grassroots practices on waste segregation are unable to fulfill the need for waste disposal and recycling, because organic, inorganic and toxic waste is often mixed and in great volumes, damaging the environment and threatening public health. Among the various waste-related needs, we need to find new and practical ways to convert bio-waste into a useful resource. We’ll share with you, through the experience of bio-waste treatment, an inspiration for reducing waste and improving resource use. Life can be seen in a whole new perspective when we work at a microbial level and we see the magic that microbes can do! If you come to work with us, we’ll also develop composting methods which you can practice at home, and we’ll reconnect with nature through a bio-life-cycle.
