For centuries, Kim Bong Carpentry Village has been famous for talent, skillfulness, and accomplishment sharply expressed in architecture, work of art, decorating designs, and mother-of-pearl inlay which can be found in Hoi An’s ancient architectural complex. The Kim Bong Villagers possess such characteristics because they have known how to inherit from the tradition of making furniture and to capture the very essence in culture from the other peoples of different nationalities living in Hoi An such as the Chinese, Japanese, and European.
Located on the Southern bank of the Thu Bon River and only 1 km coastline away from Hoi An Ancient Town, Kim Bong Carpentry Village has a position convenient for the transport of materials by river, which helps develop its traditional vocations. The carpentry in Kim Bong helps visitors know more about the area’s economic characteristics, culture and technology exchange between different congregations living in Hoi An, and about the process of inheriting the tradition and capturing other nations’ essence, which is good for the development of their own traditional vocations.
