Overview of the tour in Hoi An

Tucked away just a short distance from the beautiful Hoi An ancient town, Thanh Ha pottery village offers a glimpse into the world of pottery-making that has been passed down for centuries.

Pottery making here is a family affair, passed down through the generations. Villagers make all sorts of useful pieces, such as cups, jars, bowls, pots, and the like. At Thanh Ha, pottery is more than just an industry; it’s a cherished tradition that has been alive for more than five centuries.

Unlike many pottery studios that use molds, the artisans here shape each piece by hand and foot pedal without using molds, giving every item a distinctive and unique touch. You’ll get the chance to witness this mesmerizing process firsthand. The villagers are very kind and friendly, so they love to share their heritage with the guests. You can also try new shapes and designs for fun.
