Lacquer village

A journey to remember

Go with the moment and let it take over on your journey to the East.  

If a lacquer artisan has a story to tell you, by all means feel free to sit down and listen.  

We let the moment take over so that the local’s story becomes your story too (and we can re-arrange lunch behind the scenes).  

Long renowned for exquisite lacquer paintings, Hanoi’s Ha Thai Village is enjoying something of a renaissance.  With thousands of different models and designs on offer, move beyond the basics on display at the souvenir shop to something sprung from the heart and soul of Vietnam. Gaze in awe as the craftspeople create a lacquer painting with seemingly microscopic pieces of eggshell, drawing on expertise that’s come down through countless generations.
