    the best way to see and experience
    My girlfriend and I went to the pottery village and had a great time exploring all of the stores. The terracotta castle costs 60k per person, so we skipped it. Nevertheless, on our way back down, we stopped at a small café where the other half got involved; it was just 20k to take her pot! What a fun afternoon!

    Fun few hours
    The pottery village was a fun outing for the family. Entry was very reasonable at about 30k dong each which gave you entry to the village and a small souvenir. In the village, you could visit people homes where they were actively making pottery and they kids could try for a small fee. You could also buy completed items at reasonable rates.

    Nothing to rave about
    In all fairness, we visited during summer, which is very hot so there were not many tourists. This is mainly for tourist as not many locals visit this place. You pay a small fee and it includes a small souvenir to be collected in 2-3 of the pottery shops. Most shops will offer you free trial for you to try your hands in making some pottery but no obligations to buy them. It is not very costly to buy what you made, just needs time to make and wait. We personally thought is not worth our time travel there for this visit.

Beware - absolute rip off. We had one good pottery making shop but then got ripped off with the 2nd. We were massively overcharged for their souvenir pottery and they didn’t kiln the kids pottery so useless. Better to buy your pottery at the markets.

Great way to see local culture and an easy cycle to visit. We enjoyed painting pottery and creating a bowl.

Entry only with separate ticket, even though we had the Old Town Ticket.
Making pottery yourself requires a further ticket.
Staff was unfriendly at the entrance and also yelling at us for parking our bicycles around the corner. Unfortunately not worth for us.

We are seeing pottery making in INDIA since early childhood. But prepared items were good. Myself tried & made a item. Difficult to buy due to weight restrictions in flight

Lovely walk from our hotel in Hoi An. So interesting seeing how things have changed little for 100 years. People were all so lovely.

not a "real" village - collection of houses that are gather into 1 community ( which
also help to charge entry money ). Nothing is really "original" and most of the
pottery have nothing unique or nice about them.

My brothers, sisters in law and I , together with our tour guide Eric (Beyourfeet.com) tour guide came here to experience how the folks of this community makes pottery. My brother participated in creating a pot. One lady showed us how while the other lady used her feet to operate the pottery maker. Quite interesting to see. It’s one place to visit in Vietnam if you’re into pots and other ceramics. We spend at least half an hour here.

Thanh Ha was a remarkable experience. A short cab ride for Hoi An, the village contains many pottery studios. I highly recommend Son Thuy, in the far corner of the village ... very artistic work with hand painted items. The museum is well worth a stop, with amazing work on display. And, take advantage of the opportunity to make a pot on a potters wheel. Small admission to enter the village and visit the museum, both well worth it.
