I expected the silk village to be more like the colorful, bustling center or Hoi An, so it was a bit of a disappointment. There were significantly fewer shops, and the merchandise was rather limited. Primarily only ready made clothing (as opposed to the custom shops you can find in other parts of Vietnam) and scarves. Not really any decorative items for the home. We had intended to spend a few hours here and maybe grab lunch as well, but other than 1 or 2 fruit vendors and a few small pharmacies, there weren't really any other dining options. We were able to pop into the 2 temples and all of the silk kiosks (around 25) in just over an hour. This is definitely not a full day or even half day excursion if you plan to work it into your schedule.
