At the beginning of this journey, the entrance design recalls the Thanh Chiem Citadel, reflecting the prosperity and supremacy of the Nguyen Dynasty. The inner architecture is harmoniously blended between quintessential works from Vietnam, Japan and other European countries. According to the belief of local residents, the five basic elements (metal, wood, water, fire, and earth) play a crucial role in balancing the entire universe. This notion is performed by the imitation of 5 artisan villages, including: copper-works (metal), carpentry (wood), fishing (water), pottery (earth), and lantern (fire). These five traditional villages are crucial parts of Quang Nam province’s history, economy and culture, which created divergent, yet meticulous products by ingenious local craftsmen.
The complex is divided into different sight-seeing areas with particular themes:
The Commercial Port
Hoi An used to be an international port in two centuries, in which businessmen from European countries such as France, Netherlands and Portugal come to trade with Japanese and Chinese merchants. The atmosphere resembles a range of shops and stalls, the sound and act of traders.
