Didn't like my visit to the village at all. A boring place eager to attract tourists and make money. I felt like a lab mouse, trapped, manipulated.

Long trip there (about 40 mins)- we were expecting a village in countryside but never really left suburbia. The pottery was nothing special.

The tour guide did give us some great insight into the pottery and its meaning in Vietnam home life but other than that its just a town full of pottery. We walked trough the town and got stared at we felt very unwelcome and even so whilst in the... More

Upon reaching the place, we visited one of the shops along the main street opposite the Communal House which allows you to make your own pottery for a USD2. It was quite fun. After molding your pottery,... More
