Nice place to visit.

I know "Nice" is a pretty lousy adjective, but that's what it is. It's not a "Must See" but you will probably like it, and you will be a tad amazed at the woman in her 80s who... read more

If you go by yourself no need to pay for a taxi to stay - the ticket booth can call a taxi when you are finished. The wandering around the village is so interesting. You can wander in and out of the lanes and see all the different pottery being made. You can also try making some yourself. If you... More

I know "Nice" is a pretty lousy adjective, but that's what it is. It's not a "Must See" but you will probably like it, and you will be a tad amazed at the woman in her 80s who spins the most perfect pots whilst squatting on the ground as someone kicks her wheel for her.

the Vietnamese people are very industrious and most family businesses have been running by family members for generations. The visit to this village was very interesting and we met a family where the mom and daughter ran the pottery business. It was amazing to see that the old method of making pottery was still used - spinning the wheel was... More

We booked Pottery Making Experience Tour with Hoi An Locals Travel & Transport to visit and get new experience here. That's a peaceful village. The people here were friendly and helpful. Our day tour was nice with the highlight: pottery making experience. We were try our best but our products were really ugly! ^^

Cycled there from Hoi An on the main road - bit scary but found a path running along the river to cycle back on. There are all these pottery replica's of famous land marks like Acropolis, Houses of parliament and so on and a big christmas tree made of what looks like breasts. The museum is disappointing but modern and... More

What a find. Fantastic art on display and beautifully done. The architect did such a great job. Opportunities for hands on, as well as looking at famous monuments around the world made in clay. Really liked this place.

Be specific with the taxi driver where you want to go or you might end up in the wrong place like us. Once we arrived we went into the first house for some pottery making on the wheel. The kids loved it and this was a nice place with young ones. The pottery was free and they kinda expect you... More

great indoor activity. Had a tour of the gallery and then did a bit of pottery and painting. Very relaxing way to spend a rainy day. The building itself was a work of art. The staff were very friendly and eager to educate us on the history of pottery and brick making in the area. Thank you

We caught a taxi here and paid our 25 000 dong for entry - this was for an adult and my two children were free. This gave us a ticket that we showed to any of the families who would then show us how to use the pottery wheel - the girls had great fun making a money box, vase... More

With many samples of good pottery and friendly service we had a wonderful experience visiting Mrs Hau 's pottery and learning from her about the traditional potters of Vietnam. We spent some time here listening to the stories, admiring the pottery yes and even buying some at reasonable prices. Different pace of life well worth the time.
