“Nice vilage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

A bit a a tourist trap. You are expected to buy. We went to one merchant where she powered the wheel with her foot while her grandmother made pottery. That was interesting.

“LOTS OF POTS!”

Quaint pottery centre in a fishing village about four kilometres outside Hoi An...but some of the products are imported.

Friendly staff.

“The tourist trap but actually a bit of fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We stopped here on our way back from a tour of My Son. From what I can gather the government sponsored the reinvigoration of this pottery village as the art was starting to die out. You get to watch and then do some real pottery making on a a clay spinning thingo, spun by a lady's foot and the old lady making the clay stuff is like in her 90s. It was touristy but fun.
