Situated by a river, Thanh Ha Pottery Village serves as a living history museum where skillful craftspeople make pottery in front of visitors by using traditional techniques of mixing, baking, and burning clay.

Today, pots, bowls, cups, and tiles from the village are known for their endurance and shiny finishing glaze, which shines as bright as enamel. If you’re looking for a souvenir to bring home, consider whistles shaped like animals, or flower pots.
