We visited The Pottery Village when we stayed in Hoi An, by bicycle. It is a nice and short ride from the ancient village of Hoi An, about 3km. The Pottery Village consists of many small houses which also serve as work areas by artists who create all kinds of craft work. Our family had a chance to learn from... 更多
This was a nice cycle ride along from Hoi An, past a fish market [mornings] with vistas across the river. The eyes of the fishing boats stare back at you as you pass.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to HoiAn.

No motor, power is supplied by a family member. The lady who demonstrated in my pictures started throwing pots when... 更多
Worth a visit but not a huge amount to see. The terra cotta museum worth a look and a coffee stop. We went by boat which was very pleasant. Having walked the tourist hungry streets of Hoi An this gentle backwater was a change of pace and a connection to the world being left behind.
