Bamboo craft with local expert in Hoi An
The bamboo plant is a significant symbol in both Vietnamese culture and daily life; it's highly regarded in local culture. The solid, straight and high bamboo trees represent the resilience and bravery of the Vietnamese people. Today you'll meet with local, Mr. Tan Vo, who represents the creative young generation, bringing bamboo products up to another level. Having inherited valuable skills from his father, Mr. Tan Vo has recently created a unique bicycle with the frame and handlebars made from bamboo. The advantage of this type of special bamboo frame is its durability and flexibility. His family also hand-creates many other bamboo items which you can see and discover in the workshop. Try your hands at making a pen holder or a décor item under his guidance and take it home as a souvenir.
