What we say: 2.5 stars

Here you can watch men who have clearly mastered their trade crafting machetes, knives, shovels and spades. Keep an eye out for the bellows used to heat the metal, as many of them and other tools are remnants of bomb casings from the Vietnam War era.

A short stop here is included with many sightseeing packages, or you can get here by bicycle or tuk tuk.
