Quang Nam’s incense making village busy ahead of Tet

Quan Huong Village in the central province of Quang Nam is busy these days for incense production to meet the demand in the lead up to the Lunar New Year or Tet.

It is easy to smell the aroma of the incense scent in every corner of the village.


The village is home to 100 households which specialise in making incense with 300 workers.

Nguyet Thi Tuyet, who has engaged in the production for more than 16 years, said that Covid-19 has badly affected incense production due to lower demand. Tet is the best chance for local households to sell their products.

The households also use modern machines for making incense.

Vo Thi Nga whose family has 30-year experience in the area said demand for Tet is very high, so her workshop has to boost the productivity to serve customers.

From Tet, it would be rainy, so Nga has to dry incense products inside her house.

The households usually use their family members or seasonal workers for production.

Each year, the village produces around 1,000 tonnes of incense for domestic consumption and exports to Laos.
