“The kids will love it!”
Reviewed June 9, 2017 via mobile

If you are traveling with kids, do include this short trip in your itinerary. It's a 40 minute drive from old quarter. This quiet town is filled with over a 100 (or even more I think) ceramic shops. But what's most interesting is that they let you make one, paint it and keep it too. The whole experience costs about 40,000 VND per person per clay pot. My 5 year old daughter simply loved this experience. The bus like most reviews say is possibly the cheapest mode of transport but an Uber to here from old quarter costs about 120,000 VND. Uber is easily accessible to and fro. The pottery workshops look quite arty and have a nice feel to them.

“Great craftsmen ship from different families! ”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 via mobile

Great place to visit if you are into ceramic work. Plenty of different styles and designs. Many of the good stuff is for big homes or apartments.

Due to language limitations it was hard to negotiate and solve international shipping concern. Best to bring a local guide along if you plan to shop big.

“Very interesting domestic ceremic industry in Bat Trang May 2017”
Reviewed May 31, 2017

Visited several factories in the Bat Trang village. Seen lots of young girls and guys are painting on vessela before it goes to kiln. Seen lots of young local artistic people in action. Very busy bunch of people with team work. Visited several ceremic ware shops in the area. Some small handmade stoneware pictures were very expensive..eg. US$150 about 3inch high small buddha statues. It seems to be lots of Japanese people are visiting these places. Very dusty environment on roads. so be aware about it to cover your nose area if your are asthmatic. Some shop keepers sprinkle water on roads to reduce the dust..but its not a solution..Shop keepers very helpful and courteous. Factory staff also the same.

“Ceramic ”
Reviewed May 19, 2017 via mobile

You do not need to join tour to visit Bat Trang.

we took a taxi from old quarter and cost about Vnd160000.

The taxi driver alight us at the front part of Bat Trang. It has more individual shops or company and not so touristic as the Ceramic Village, which it will takes us another 15-20 minutes walks.

Things are cheaper here vs Old quarters and bargin is possible too.

We bought vase which cost only Usd15 which was incredibly cheap!

You can take a bus back to Hoam Kien at the end of the Ceramic Village. Cost around Vnd7000. Journeys maybe around 1-1.5hrs.

“Enormous selection of ceramics - very cool! But gets overwhelming. ”
Reviewed May 11, 2017 via mobile

Bat Trang is like no place I have ever seen. The ceramics are very impressive and endless. That said, it becomes a bit overwhelming with all the tourists, and very hard on a warm day because the only shade is inside the shops. It's about a 40 minute drive from central Hanoi. If you have extra time I would definitely go but don't go if you're short on time because most of the Pottery you will find in Hanoi and Vietnam is from there anyway!
