    Diese Tour zum


    Diese Tour zum Räucherstäbchen Dorf ist wirklich etwas besonderes und wird ausschließlich über Tinny Travel angeboten. Wir besuchten eine private Familie und tranken Tee mit ihnen. Die Lackkunst und Hutmalerei sind ein Teil der Tour und machen wirklich Spass. Das Essen bei der Familie war fantastisch. Alles in allem ein wunderbarer Ausflug. Mein persönliches Highlight waren die Räucherstäbchen. Auf dem Weg dorthin, kann man die Einheimischen beim Arbeiten beobachten. Sehr empfehlenswert. Danke nochmal, dass ihr die Tour gemacht habt, obwohl wir nur zu zweit waren. Das ist nicht selbstverständlich in Vietnam.

    Amazing excursion


    Amazing excursion, I loved every minute of the time in the village learning about the incense stick production. We saw different stages of the production from arrival of the bamboo to it's cutting and dyeing. Tinny helped with photo recommendations and conversations with the people we met. An unforgettable insight into local life and a fantastic photography opportunity not to be missed.

    Amazing experience visiting 3 different villages. Our tour guide, Tinny, was an awesome guide and really went all out showing us parts of Hanoi I would have never seen on my own. Highly recommend!

    What a FANTASTIC experience! We ventured out into the countryside, south of Hanoi, and visited three craftwork villages. We saw (and experienced!) the process of making incense, the building of bamboo birdcages and the making of the iconic Vietnamese conical hat. Our host, Mr. Tinny, is such a lovely person, and He was instrumental in making our experience truly memorable. I should also note that Mrs. Thanh, the artisan who makes the conical hats, threw down such an incredible spread for lunch. It was, without question, the most amazing meal we’ve had in Vietnam over the last two weeks - and that’s saying something because all of our dining experiences have been wonderful. If you visit Hanoi, do yourself a favor and book this experience… Without a doubt, it will be the highlight of your trip!
