A nice cycle ride out of Hoi An but the village is very limited - only one/two places of interest where you can help the lady make an object or paint them. Had bought a ticket for sightseeing in Hoi An but the cost of entrance to the village is an extra 25k - not much but still, always extra... More

If you have to kill some time, it' be better to sit in a cafe than to go there. Nothing to see in the village but some terrible houses, mess all around and fast-food clay things. Lost of time and energy . We rode a bike to get there from Hoi An and it took us about 45 minutes in... More

As part of the boat trip up the river from Hoi An most boats stop here and you can enjoy the pottery atmosphere. The shared kilns and individual houses wares and wheels that are used to make your very own pottery creations...

We wandered through the village and whilst we were asked to by a few things as we wandered (typical tourist place) we did get a free gift which was lovely. My husband made a little piece which of course stays there as things are fired only once a month. He had fun. We were lucky to see some preparing the... More

Because this place needs more advertising here goes: Established and famous since 16th century, Completely authentic in materials, technology and process for pottery production. OK for a $1US you too can try your hand at making...... an ashtray (bad memories from school). You could give the village a miss. But the museum is will worth a visit. You get the... More

The village is located just a couple of minutes cycling from Hoi An's centre. Had high expectations of this village but it was really a let down. All the shops have exactly the same products (some of which are not made in the village at all). Moreover, I hoped to see tradition and history but all I saw were people... More

We biked out there during Tet and sadly it seemed closed, so we had a coffee at the shop next door. Then when we saw a tour group go through, we decided to walk the alleys and though mostly closed we could see a bit of the pottery village. You can buy and try to make some pottery too.

People need to make a living, and do so any way they can. The little pottery "animal whistles" are unique. They concentrate on practical pottery for the home market - don't expect beautifully glazed vases or bowls. You can try making a pot for free or attend a pottery making class
