Cam Kim Island

Island in Hoi An

The master woodcarvers who crafted the intricate detail adorning Hoi An’s public buildings and the historic homes of the town’s merchants came from Kim Bong village on Cam Kim Island. Most of the woodcarvings on sale in Hoi An are produced here.

Boats to the island leave from the boat landing at Ð Bach Dang in Hoi An (35,000d, 30 minutes). The village and island, quite rural in character, are fun to explore by bicycle for a day.
