That is Triem Tay village.
Stop at a family on the riverside to see the most common job here: weaving sleeping mats. This is one of our traditional jobs left from hundreds of years ago. A colourful mat is made by different generations in the same family. This island is a meeting place for sleeping mats business ladies.
