Hanoi is not famous for historical sites, entertainment centers but also famous for traditional carft villages.

Located 40km(25 miles) southwest of downtown Hanoi on Highway 21B, the residents of the small Chuong village are famous for making iconic concial hats (Non)seen throughout Vietnam. Thin and elegant, these cone hats generally end up om the streets of the Old Quarter for sale at three or four times the price. Three km(2 miles) east of here is Vac Village where residents once earned a living making paper fans. Since the introduction of air conditioners, villages now specialize in the bamboo frames of concial hats as well as bamboo bridcages. Half-finished products can be seen strewn about in the court-yearts of workshops.

Further east and north on Highway 1A, Duyen Truong village specializes in lacquerware, with family workshops displaying their products in tiny front-rooms shops. Still charming and accessible, they are increasingly being dwarfed by the big factories on the highway.

North of Chuong and Vac villages, and just 15km (9 miles) west of downtown Hanoi, is the Van Phuc silk Village. For centuries villagers here have produced fine, colourful silks, though only in the past decade have the mass of silk shops and tailors opened their doors.

Ten kilometres (6 miles) east of downtown Hanoi, in the city’s Gia Lam District, is Bat Trang Village, known throughout the region for its hight-quality pottery pieces often used in pagodas. Made from a local type of white clay, the Bat Trang potters produce gorgeous bowls, cups, vases and incense holders, and the small village is often swamped with busloads of tourists.
