Our textile specialist, Ms. Thanh, will greet and transfer you to the Vietnamese Museum of Ethnology which displays a wide range of textiles and the handicrafts of 54 ethnic minorities. Next, visit the Fine Art Museum which has stunning displays of ethnic clothing, and is one of the city's finest colonial buildings. After lunch, attend a natural dye workshop with a textile expert. You will have opportunities to see the wide range of natural colors dyed onto antique fabrics, and how the organic dyed products are made from leafs, roots, barks, and environmentally safe pigments. Experience the process for yourself with a hands-on indigo dye product. Later, visit ‘Silk Street’ located in the heart of the Old Quarter and browse the many shops selling beautiful silk products.
Optional - Spend an evening at the amazing local Water Puppet show
