Insider Experience: Kite Making Artisanry

Spend your morning with a kite enthusiast who will teach you the fine art of kite-making and decorating.

The imperial city of Hue is known for its beautiful kites, so why not spend your morning getting to know more about this traditional craft?

We'll arrange for you to meet Mr Cu, a third-generation kite maker and director of Hue's 'Kite Flying Club', who will introduce you to his passion: the making and decorating of kites. To begin the day you'll take a tour of his house and the workshop where he makes the kites, then you'll get a chance to try painting your own. Kite painting requires a delicate hand, but with Mr Cu to guide you you're sure to produce a masterpiece. When finished, you can keep the kite as a souvenir.

This experience is a great way to support the traditional arts, and will allow you to learn about the livelihood and lifestyle of a local artisan.
