Historic Site
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. Dating back to the 15th century, the village played a significant role in the growth of Hoi An. 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.
