We went as part of our Mercury Holiday Tour and were pleasantly surprised to be able to watch an 80 year old still throwing pots and bowls. Two of our party even had a go themselves and made their own pots. Good fun and worth a visit.

It has taken us until our second Vietnam visit to find this little village tucked away down a couple of very small single laneways. The houses/shops will welcome you in to have a go at making your own pot. The massive pile of clay is out the back of one of the houses, near a couple of the kilns. It... More

Went here as part of a motorbike tour with the hotel. Quaint place. We had a go at making a pot with the help of the expert at the wheel...(turned by power of a lady with her foot). Bought a cute little pot which has pride of place in our kitchen and reminds us of Hoi An.

The Pottery Village was interesting - lots of small potter's houses and the opportunity to watch a pot being thrown and then to have a go yourself. However, the highlight of the village for us was the Terracotta Museum. This was an architecturally stunning building with many wonderful exhibits, for example, beautiful pottery, large wall plaques depicting everyday life and... More

It is an old pottery village which is trying to sustain itself by tourism . However, the Pottery Museum is well-worth the entry fee and is a prizewinning building.

I really enjoyed the Pottery Village. You get to make a pot on the pottery wheel and everyone was really friendly. I did not feel pressured into buying anything, but I did get a few pieces! They give you a gift for visiting and the photo ops are amazing!

A slice of Vietnamese life and trying pottery-making oneself and watching a 93 yr old lady making pottery; also able to buy items produced. A nice experience.

This is a very sweet little village on the banks of the Thu Bon river, which apparently was started more than 400 years ago, under the rule of the Chinese, who taught them the art of pottery.Today there are not too many people buying their ware, so the potters in this village are being sponsored by the government to continue...

We went there as the first thing after breakfast, at that time there was not many tourists. First we where walking through the city, where we had meet some very kindly people who let us tried to turn our own pottery in exchange for the entry-ticket. I can highly recommend this visit.
