Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Local Artisans at Tam Thanh Village

Before stepping foot, this was a last second accommodation booked through Tui Blue Nam Hoi An. This tour may be different from other tour groups as I believe our tour was called Local Artisans at Tam Thanh Village. The Tui Blue resort and local people have teamed up which was very heart felt. Forgive me as I tried to be as accurate as possible, but some names could be misspelled and some facts slightly off.

First and foremost, a big thank you to Nora as she made this excursion possible. At first, we did not think it would happen since we inquired late in the day and thought we were unable to do it on a Saturday afternoon. After further exploration, Nora was able to hook us up with Hop who made this day trip very personable as she was our private guide.

The small fishing village is one all should experience. There is much history and pride in this fishing village.

The slight customization with an additional cost was the UTV ride. Instead of biking or shuttle or whatnot, we drove the UTV down the beach from the resort to the fishing village. It was a lot of fun. The cool thing is, I got to drive it back to the resort once we finished, weaving in and out of obstacles, as well as people literally scattered on the beach which was a fun experience.

At the start of our excursion, we all jumped into the UTV driven by Toan. He drove a little bit of the racetrack on the side of the resort and then off we went to the Tam Thanh Mural Village.

The first stop was at the basket boats which were colorfully painted influenced by the Vietnamese and Koreans as creating “Art for a Better Community.” We will be back to the basket boats later.

Upon arrival to the fishing village on the beach, we saw some local fisherman with their net cast away in the shallow waters. We learned what fish was caught now would be the evening meal for the family. All that was used was a net, a friend to help as they would cast, wait for half an hour, and pull in by hand. It was eye opening to see what was caught and to understand a way of life.

Next, we started to wander Tam Thanh. I believe there are about 100 houses with murals on them as the locals we encountered were quite friendly and willing to interact with us.

Our first local stop was to Ms. Lap house as she was making Mi Quang noodles, which is a specialty here in which we got to help make ourselves after watching the pro. Then we were given a bag with some crackers and some of her personal Jack Fruit.

While continuing to walk through the village, we accidentally ended up at Anton house. Anton wife invited us over as they had a nice mural of him sewing. Anton is deaf and the family takes great pride in sewing handbags and hats which hopefully would be approved by the resort.

Our second stop was to Ms. Lan house. It’s here we were introduced to ‘Ngoc Lan’ fish sauce being made and sold to both the resort and within the community. We saw this at the resort. It’s a 100-year-old company with 4th generation running it and possibly baby Rice to be the future. We met grandma who is 91 years old. After we toured the area where they have the fish sauce in the back, we broke bread together which was the Mi Quang noodles that we made earlier and crackers while dipping it into their fish sauce, garlic, and chilis. It was very tasty.

Our third stop along the way was to the basket boats on the Jute (long river). There was an opportunity to take some very cool pictures of the sun on the horizon reflecting on the water. Here we jumped into two basket boats. I was in a boat with Hop and a boat guy. It was my turn to row as it took me some time to get a feel for it. Hop was so encouraging, as well as our boat guy as I think he just wanted a smoke. Ha! After some time, I was able to get it going by finding my groove, and genuinely having fun. Thanks, Hop.

Afterwards, we met Toan on the beach to go back to the resort. They asked if I wanted to drive us back in which I was like Yeah. Let’s Go! It was a lot of fun and the UTV can really pick up speed, but it was very important to pay attention even though I wanted to have fun selfies. More so, it was getting dark out, so it was a race to get back to the resort, watching out for people and obstacles in the sand.

Once back to the resort, Hop shared some pictures and videos of our day spent together. I think the total time was 4+ hours. This was nice to do with family as we had our own private and custom tour while learning and interacting with the Tam Thanh community.

Later I found out, Duyen had started to interact with the Tam Thanh community once she arrived at Tui Blue Nam resort. She helped to build initial relationships, as well as work alongside the village bringing in some local products to their resort. However, doing tours was not her specialty as she was more behind the scenes. This was perfect for Hop. Hop is great with the community and has their utmost respect. She’s amazing with my family and I imagine all she encounters including myself. She’s very comforting, informed, and undoubtedly easy to get along with.

Big thank you to all who made this happen starting with Nora. If this is booked through Tui Blue Nam resort, please inquire what sights are accessible and if Hop is available to be your guide.

So nice to get away from all the tourists in Hoi An, this was such a nice peaceful and relaxing place to come. Beautiful art painted on houses, walls makes it refreshing. Nice walk along the beach also with just fishing boats and you - loved it here and walked along the beach and back through the village. Well worth making the time to visit here, there are a number of things to see on the way - tunnels, heroic mother statue. Half day trip.

It was a lovely village near the beach in Tam Ky which all the houses were painted by mural artists. The beach was clean, and the atmosphere was friendly and peaceful. Not many things to do in the village, only relaxing on the beach was the best thing to do when we were there.

Great Korean Viet cooperation and the results are stunning plus its also beachside. Great beach. There are twenty or so murals done and the locals are very welcoming in terms of photo taking and encroaching into people's gardens to take pix.

We went there and the people are so friendly. We met a very sweet family with a mural in their house, they have physical disability, so they paint bags for a living. You can buy one for 100.000 dongs. It's a huge help. The village is chill and good vibes. Highly recommended!
