Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Thanh Ha was a remarkable experience. A short cab ride for Hoi An, the village contains many pottery studios. I highly recommend Son Thuy, in the far corner of the village ... very artistic work with hand painted items. The museum is well worth a stop, with amazing work on display. And, take advantage of the opportunity to make a pot on a potters wheel. Small admission to enter the village and visit the museum, both well worth it.

My brothers, sisters in law and I , together with our tour guide Eric (Beyourfeet.com) tour guide came here to experience how the folks of this community makes pottery. My brother participated in creating a pot. One lady showed us how while the other lady used her feet to operate the pottery maker. Quite interesting to see. It’s one place to visit in Vietnam if you’re into pots and other ceramics. We spend at least half an hour here.

Super aggressive ladies at the ticket office and really unfriendly. Basically paid, including kids at 35,000 pp, for driving into a village where there is little to see. Only shops with paid pottery. You can easily not pay. We avoided also the aggressive parking lady for our bikes… pottery making is free. They expect you to buy some of the stuff you make (50k).

Not a great place for the fact that you have to pay 35000 vnd to walk and go shopping. My daughter enjoyed making pottery of her own and we had to pay 50000 more to get it back. It is fine, but still think one shouldnt have to buy a ticket to get in a village.

Beware - absolute rip off. We had one good pottery making shop but then got ripped off with the 2nd. We were massively overcharged for their souvenir pottery and they didn’t kiln the kids pottery so useless. Better to buy your pottery at the markets.

Visited May 2019. The quality of the local pottery was underwhelming and uninspiring...and vendors were pushy. Walking around the village was of more interest, but given our time again, we would would probably choose a different village.

There is nothing much in the village apart from a few places that make pottery. The shops sell plates and bowls double the price than the market. They are the same.

We visited one morning and enjoyed the short time there. 45 minutes is probably plenty of time. We hired a boat from Hoi An for about $30 US for 3 hours. The boat could accommodate 18 people and was arranged by our hotel. The ride from Hoi An was about 20 minutes at which point our Boat driver took us to the ticket office where we purchased our tickets for 2 adults and a 6 year old (free for him). There was an old Vietnamese woman who then guided us to her shop and let us make a bowl or pot on her potters wheel. We shopped at her shop and felt that the $10 we spent on a few items was sufficient for her time in letting us throw a pot.

We then walked through the village where all of the shops basically have the same things. WE received our free gifts of two clay whistles at the designated shop. We also purchased several small things.
Additional whistles were 2 for $1 USD. I had to buy some not because I need clay whistles but because the people were so friendly and I realize this is their income. After about 45 minutes in the heat we headed back to our boat and on our way.

Overall, with managed expectations, it is a good short tour to do one morning from Hoi An. I suspect a taxi there would be about $5.00. My 6y/o son enjoyed making a pot, which he kept, and choosing whistles.

You can wonder into the village without buying a ticket, but we did buy one, so we got a little whistle souvenir which you can find in the old town for cheaper than the village ticket. The village wasn't anything really extraordinary to me. We noticed that there were pottery making, so we tried. They said it was free but we weren't able to take it home. We asked if we can have our pottery back to take home and the lady charged us 80,000 vdn to send it back to our hotel the next day after it goes into the kiln. We are now back in our home country and I wanted to wash it before using it and the bowl that we made dissolved in water! They obviously didn't put it in the kiln and now I am left with a clump of clay. I feel like I've been cheated!!!

I am a potter. I was expecting to see lots of different makers producing different things . Instead, a lot of the items for sale were mass produced. The items that were being made were very small and aimed at the tourist market. It really isn't worth visiting.
