Calligraphy class - A historic art of vietnam


  • 2 hours in total

  • Offered in English

  • Meetup at a desingated location

What To Expect

Ever since calligraphy was introduced to Vietnam by the Chinese as one of the many cultural exchanges that shaped Vietnamese culture, much has changed over history to adapt the art to better express the richness of the Vietnamese language. Its usage was historically confined to scholars and noblemen when the use of Han script was still prevalent, but today, the art has taken rooted itself in both modern Vietnamese calligraphy of the Chinese characters and its national language, Quoc-Ngu that originated from the French rule.

Despite the many changes, the essence of the art still remains true to the core. The elegance of brush strokes as they define each character is as appealing as art itself. What intrigues, even more, is how different characters gracefully harmonize to change the meaning of a word. The character that describes women, for instance, can mean 'peace' if the character for the roof is placed over it. Seeming abstract in nature, the art follows a rule that is both fascinating and exciting.

In this Experience, you will learn calligraphy in Vietnamese Language and/or English. Our host, a skilled artist, and a calligraphy master will take you back in time and present an art that is still revered and respected. Don't miss this chance to put your own strokes as you learn this ancient art.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximize your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
