Thanh Tien Paper Flower Village


The Thanh Tien traditional handicraft village is located near the Huong River, which is about 5km downstream from Hue City and opposite the ancient town of Bao Vinh. Established more than 300 years ago, the village is famous for its traditional craft of making paper flowers. Thanh Tien paper flowers have long been considered sacred objects for Tet. They are changed once a year and are revered as unfading flowers. Thanh Tien paper flowers bring splendid colours to many family altars in Hue during Tet and have become a special cultural feature of the ancient capital.
