Very good experience, wonderful part of Hoi an which deserves more recognition
Spettacolare. Consiglio è davvero molto grande non è sufficiente un giorno per girarla tutta.
Super activité avec les enfants.
Đơn giản chỉ là một làng nghề gốm thủ công của người dân nơi đây nên chưa có nhiều hoạt động lắm. Ở đây các bạn có thể biết được quy trình tạo ra những bình gốm từ lúc lấy đất sét lên đến tạo hình rồi cho vào nung trong lò với nhiệt độ khoảng 1000 độ sau đó cho ra những tác phẩm từ đất rất tuyệt vời. Các bạn có thể mua vé để đi công viên với 55k rất nhiều địa điểm check-in tuyệt vời…

陶器博物館,有許多有趣的作品以及專業的講解,適合與家人一同旅遊參觀。 可以自行製作陶土,體驗手拉胚。
Nice place to cycle round. Suggest getting a ticket then can try your turn at the pottery wheel in some of the shops. Nice gifts they gave us (if you buy a ticket). We also bought some ceramic tea diffusers and coffee percolators, which are very cute
도자기마을 흥미로운 곳 롯데관광을 통해 패키지여행을 했는데 관광만으로도 기부가 되는 곳이라고 소개받음 피리같은 동물인형 받음
A bit touristy but still worth going, for 35k vnd ticket you can join pottery shows and even try to do some of it yourself + you get a souvenir from a gift shop
Had fun exploring this gem in hoi an, love the cultural experience, really nothing like this in the world !
Hands on experience of pottery making. Note, you should walk around the village first rather than going to the first place you see as you can make many different things (wheel pottery, whistles, masks etc) in different locations. They will ask if you want to fire and buy after making, but you can say no, or maybe just take one for the whole group, then make something else at another spot.

Really cool place to visit - you can try your hand at making pottery on the wheel or buy some cool gifts
볼거리가 많아요!!
If you find a good shop, that can be a really good experience to do some pottery, cooking it and painting it.

Chouette village de poterie. Vous pouvez essayer gratuitement. Ou alors réaliser une confection pour la ramener en souvenir contre une petite somme d'argent. Activité sympa et petit cadeau en bonus

35 000 l'entrée avec une petite poterie offerte. Beau petit village pour expérimenter la poterie !
There are many different pottery houses but the one I went to was at the very back and than turn right and walk to the end. The young lady there was really nice and it was super enjoyable. She was very nice and let my baby niece paint a clay structure. At the end of the experience after you leave, you get souvenirs depending on the amount of tickets you bought.
Có bán vé ở cổng, giá 35k, đi vào trong có thể trải nghiệm làm đồ gốm, có thể mang đem về luôn, trải nghiệm thì không tốn tiền nhưng đem nung, sấy xong đem về thì có tính phí, RẤT ĐÁNG ĐI!!
