  1. Thasan Vong Sukai says:

    The old village was like turning back the pages of time when we visited and the terracotta pieces used in construction made interesting viewing. The wood carving village was very good and it is easy to see why their products are popular as the skills of the workers are brilliant.

  2. Robert says:

    Took a day tour in Hanoi to the Tho Ha and Dong Ky villages and was pretty impressed. The ancient Tho Ha village was excellent as it epitomises old Asia, and the skilled people of the wood processing village, Dong Ky were a pleasure to see, and watch them at work.
