Hue’s Innovative Art of Bamboo
- Half Day
Today, leave the hotel at 08:30 or 13:30 from your hotel. Bamboo is engraved in Vietnamese culture and daily life, providing protection and representing resiliency. In the countryside, bamboo is used for everything- from daily used items to musical instruments to ornaments.
Drive 20-min north of the Citadel to visit a less-known village Bao La where locals still keep the traditional craft from bamboo down generations. For those who seek to understand the heart of the Vietnamese communities, Bao La Village is a good example. Regarded for their basketry weaving, the people of Bao La understand this craft well. Under the harmonious leadership of the forefather of the village, each hamlet of the village specializes in one kind of basket weaving to prevent unnecessary strife and competition, and to encourage a cooperative spirit throughout. Listen to their stories about how to adapt the traditions to modern life.
Then head your way to a workshop in the city and meet with an artisan who has integrated bamboo with traditional handicrafts to create revolution new art in Vietnam, that’s so-called Truc Chi art. Truc means bamboo and Chi means paper. Learn how the artisans use Truc Chi to create handicraft items with the cultural characteristics of Hue and experience it yourself under their guidance.

Be transferred back to the hotel at 12:00 or 17:00.
