We booked the tour online but due to our flight delay therefore we arrive at the location 1 hour late which the tour has been started. We called green village to check if we can just come by to visit the space but however due to this is a private villas and hotel therefore it is not open for visitor unless you stay there or come for the tour. Ani- the receptionist made an exceptional favor for us to go ahead with the tour at Bamboo factory first, then back to green village for a private tour which led by two ladies. The bamboo factory is something you will love if you love the design process and interested to know more about the art of making the building/ how they treat the bamboo. That place is not some place fancy with aircon but a real workshop with wood / bamboo and lots of dust. The tour guide explains to us the different type of bamboo and how they use each of them in their designs. My husband is amazed by the concept and the use of bamboo and comment that if you never come to bamboo factory, all you know about the bamboo house is just shallow. Overall thumbs up for the whole creativity and designs of the architectural. Worth a visit.
