Every year the village of Bo Sang have their umbrella festival in January. This year it starts on the 17th and runs to the 19th.
This can be a nice afternoon or all day excursion because there are many handicraft type factories along Hwy 1006. A good guide will be able to stopover at the jewelry, leather, paper or silk factories depending on your tastes and mood! But I’m not much of a shopper, so let me recommend the Bo Sang Umbrella factory right off of Hwy 1006 on 1014 just at the beginning stretch into the town.
But even if you can’t make it over there this weekend, Bo Sang and the neighboring factories are worth the visit – especially for souvenirs, and handicrafts. Have fun!
