Hải Dương is a highly industrialized province in northern Vietnam where the country’s manufacturing companies are located. It is like Cavite Economic Zone in Luzon and MEPZ in Cebu. When we had that long drive to Ha Long from Hanoi, we stopped by one of the province’s factory, the Production Workshop for Disabled People.
And as we entered the workshop, we saw disabled people busily doing their craft. I always admire non-government organizations and local government units who take time in creating projects for the disabled people. I believe that they have talents that should be recognized and potential to be maximized so kudos to Hải Dương for giving them importance and treating them like normal people.
Just like in Singapore Gems and Metals Company, you may also shop inside so you can bring some souvenirs home. They ship to all corners of the world if you want the giant statues or other pottery to avoid breakage in hand-carrying them. All you have to do is fill-in their form, pay the bill, and wait for the package to arrive in the convenience of your very own home.
Always stay tuned for more of Vietnam only here on The Other Side of Mae! 🙂 #tosomtravels
