The outfit here makes massive brass statuary for buyers from all over the world. The smithing and forging are still done using very basic techniques, and the craftsmanship is impressive. Many guides will include this in a tour in the hope that you might part with some hard-earned cash, but there’s no harm in showing up on your own. Like everywhere in Vietnam, if you rock-up during the early afternoon there really isn’t much to see except for the roadside shops as the craftspeople down tools for a good couple of hours for lunch.
