Hue preserves quintessence of Vietnamese traditional crafts

(VOVWORLD) - Hue, the former imperial capital of Vietnam, is home to many traditional crafts, including special ones originating from mandarin workshops or ancient craft villages specialising in serving mandarins.
Through the ups and downs of history, Hue has maintained a rich and unique network of craft villages and is considered a place where the quintessence of Vietnamese crafts has been preserved.
