The Hoi An Silk Village is an attraction that opened in 2012 based on the ancient silk weaving traditions of the Quang Nam province, which used Hoi An as a commercial port for more than 300 years. Located just a kilometer from Hoi An Old Town, the village is surrounded by farmland, mulberry gardens, and lotus ponds.
Paths wind through the village’s gardens and ancient houses, built in the typical Quang Nam style. The village employs a dozen artisans who manufacture and weave silk into various garments using ancient looms, and guests can learn about the entire production process, from the silkworm through to the finished garment. The silkworm-breeding house is of particular interest; here visitors will learn how to feed the silkworms and even unravel the cocoons using traditional methods.
The Hoi An Silk Village also has a restaurant serving local food, plus a silk showroom where visitors can have custom clothing designed and made.
Located around a kilometer from the heart of Hoi An Old Town, the most popular way to visit the Hoi An Silk Village is as part of an organized tour. There is also a bus stop nearby.
