Thanh Ha Pottery Village
While taking a town tour in Hoi An, you're probably enthralled by the multiform colors of the bricks that construct the ancient buildings. Ever wondered where this unique material is? Then you've got to visit Thanh Ha Pottery Village, a long historical legacy playing an important role in the development of Hoi An.
A few minutes' drive (or the ride to My Son Sanctuary) will take you to the 15th-century village, which is renowned for earthenware that was sold in many provinces throughout central Vietnam. It was Thanh Ha villagers who made the bricks, tiles, and floor slabs for the old buildings in Hoi An and the surrounding areas. Sometimes they're even exported abroad (Canada, America, France).
Potters here are welcoming and friendly, and you’ll find the visit is well deserved. Offered with a seat, you could watch the process of making potteries. The techniques they use are unique and very different from those prevalent in other provinces. Therefore, the village is more of a live museum for scientific study. The durability of their products is ranked at the top as compared to others in the country, and the brightness is the same as enamel.
Back in Hoi An town, attending a cooking class is available for Vietnamese cuisine lovers. You'll take pleasure in collecting souvenirs with this 22-Day Explore Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos &Thailand tour.
