If you'd like to buy silk fabric then make sure and visit Van Phuc. They also have scarves, and other clothing but one of my goals in visiting was fabric and I found a lovely selection here.

We were greatly disappointed at what the silk village has to offer. Shops all selling almost same things . Poor design and price not great either. Not worth the visit.

We visited the silk village this month and saw some amazing offers for silk ties and pashminas! You just need to check almost every shop in order to find the right quality- really worth the effort going there.

Easy to get there by taxi. Approx 190,000 VND from Hanoi Opera House. Bargain given is takes 30-40mins due to traffic. We fancied just wandering around so didn't book any guides/tours. For our needs it worked well. We got to watch a lady working a...More

No need to organize in advance. I got chatting with an amputee by the lake and she took me there in the local busses, which is the cheapest way to go. But any taxi will take you there.
