  • Peaceful pottery village near Hoi An. It's very nice to visit this place, you can also make your own pottery. Remember to visit the terracotta museum at the entrance of the village
  • A village if artisan families selling their own products. Interesting experience. Some pieces are really quite good and well made.
  • It's great to see all artisans at work and try your hand at pottery. You also get a gift if you buy entrance ticket.
  • Nice experience and friendly people. Loved the big museum there!
  • Overrated. Highlight is the 94 year old matriarch who is helping preserve the craft in the family... Quality, finesse and designs of pottery could be better
