With the desire to preserve the traditional beauty and create attractive destinations, recently, Khanh Hoa Forest and Sea Products Company has upgraded Truong Son apricot garden to Truong Son craft village, which covers  near an area of 20,000m2 at 8 Truong Son Street, Nha Trang City. Truong Son craft village now introduces many handicrafts of the province.
 
Visitors can admire the beautiful driftwood works, see the local people knitting fishing nets weaving, weaving mats, making conical hats, etc. inside houses with bright red tile roofs, In addition to traditional products, the people here have also created beautiful decorative products from sedge mats and fishing nets. Here, visitors also can see big animals knitted by plastic. The newest is the work Dong Son bronze drum, 4m in diameter, made of synthetic plastic.

Visitors come here to have a chance to see the sculptures bearing the Cham culture of the sculptor Doan Xuan Hung, the sculptures inspired by the history. Many visitors are also fascinated by the painting of famous artist Le Vu, Hong Chau Sa sand paintings, clay flowers by Pham Thi Thanh Tra ... Especially, two huge sand paintings of Truong Son craft village (2 x 1.2m) and Truong Son apricot village (1.2m in diameter) by artisan Tran Thi Thu (the founder of Hong Chau Sa sand painting brand) are impressived by their size and difficulty in making sand paintings.
 
Visitors to Truong Son craft village can not only visit the handicrafts but also see the garden full of flowers and fruits. In May, Truong Son craft village had 2,000 sunflowers in bloom; hundreds of rose pots are also blooming.
 
Currently, some travel companies have suggested to bring visitors to Truong Son craft village to introduce learn about the traditional culture and crafts of Khanh Hoa. Hopefully, this cultural destination will be more well-known in the coming time.
