Time permitting, (and if they are working) we will make a stop to visit a family who makes earth bricks and tiles on the roadside and try our hands making one or two tiles. You’ll be amazed how difficult it is to make those simple tiles! Arriving at Tho Ha village, we will visit a family who make ritual votive paper products.
