Nestled on the banks of Irrawaddy you can visit a village, that seems to live on clay. Watch them making their typical water-bowls how they did it since hundreds of year. Very authentic

Walked around this village and watching the local people making hand made pots. A wonderful finish with a lot hard manual work. All made from raw materials. Everyday living in these villages is hard work.

I visited Yandabo Village on a stop when going by boat from Mandalay to Bagan, so it was unexpected. It was really interesting to see how the villagers make the pottery in a traditional way. A good side trip.

The Burmese are a beautiful and hard working people. This look at one way of living, on a family scale, is well worth your time
