We wandered through the village and whilst we were asked to by a few things as we wandered (typical tourist place) we did get a free gift which was lovely. My husband made a little piece which of course stays there as things are fired only once a month. He had fun. We were lucky to see some preparing the... More

Because this place needs more advertising here goes: Established and famous since 16th century, Completely authentic in materials, technology and process for pottery production. OK for a $1US you too can try your hand at making...... an ashtray (bad memories from school). You could give the village a miss. But the museum is will worth a visit. You get the... More

The village is located just a couple of minutes cycling from Hoi An's centre. Had high expectations of this village but it was really a let down. All the shops have exactly the same products (some of which are not made in the village at all). Moreover, I hoped to see tradition and history but all I saw were people... More

We weren't sure what to expect when we paid the very reasonable entrance fee. Once inside, however, we were really impressed. This place turned out to be full of wonderful terra cotta art installations, bas relief panels, and other impressive art. Absolutely go if you can.

We biked out there during Tet and sadly it seemed closed, so we had a coffee at the shop next door. Then when we saw a tour group go through, we decided to walk the alleys and though mostly closed we could see a bit of the pottery village. You can buy and try to make some pottery too.

People need to make a living, and do so any way they can. The little pottery "animal whistles" are unique. They concentrate on practical pottery for the home market - don't expect beautifully glazed vases or bowls. You can try making a pot for free or attend a pottery making class

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.
