At the workshop, it is agreed that the tourism potential of craft villages in the province is abundant and diversified. However, households in the traditional craft villages in the province mainly produce in a spontaneous way; the pollution of the village environment causes lack of sympathy for tourists; the travel team in the province lacks the professionalism; despite the diversity of products in craft villages, no products has specific tourism characteristic; infrastructure system serving for tourism is limited ... To develop tourism associated with traditional villages, it is necessary to have craft villages planned, focus on craft villages with specific products to develop them into tourism products such as: Fish-pot village of Thu Sy commune (Tien Lu), Cao Thon Musk Incense village in Bao Khe commune (Hung Yen city), Long Thuong  Copper Casting village in Dai Dong commune (Van Lam). The craft villages should have showrooms to introduce their products and the process of formation, development as well as their cultural characteristics; invest in infrastructure serving for tourism such as guest houses, hotels, restaurants; improve the qualifications and professional skills of tour guides and artisans; strengthen the connection with travel businesses to attract visitors...
