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...
