If you like local arts and handicrafts then you will be spoilt for choice on a visit to Vietnam.
Hoi An is known across Vietnam for being a hub for beautiful locally made products and you will be able to shop for these in places like the main central market.
There are also a number of handicraft villages dotted on the outskirts of the town and you can usually take a tour to these where you can learn about the historical and cultural background behind the making of these items.
Many of these are made by local minorities and make excellent gifts or souvenirs.
In the handicraft villages you can also take classes such as ancient weaving or calligraphy.
