  • Quite disappointed in this activity, yes we get by boat to this village but it is a little fake as activity. We walk in the streets with some shops of pottery doing all the same things, not very original

  • We were hoping to see a somewhat preserved village and manufacturing traditional tile - unfortunately we have quickly became disillusioned. Firstly, the entrance to 25 000vnd does not include admission to the Museum (30 000vnd). Then, the points of interest in the village are very limited. A few places around here to see cooking ovens, a little tour to pottery in action, etc. Of course when we stop to look at the use of the Tower, we encourage you to try... free of course... for two minutes later, trick you into buying industrial trinket as a thank you! normal... Apart from these few places or we see manufacturing (only bowls and other figurines of animals to sell to tourists), of course you can't see anything from traditional apart from a few utensils. But above all, the most unpleasant, is to address in front of each House to buy such figures... in the end, even by making efforts, the visit lasted no more than an hour and there rather seems being roll in flour!
