Full description
Choose from a shared or private experience and start your tour with pickup from your hotel in Hanoi. Head northeast along the left bank of the Red River to Bat Trang Village. The village is surrounded by fertile farmland and well known for its beautiful ceramics. Bat Trang is filled with wall-to-wall shops selling ancient and modern ceramics. It is not only a booming business, but also the trade helping to keep the traditional crafts alive. Have a chance to chat with the local artisans at work or try sitting behind a potter’s wheel to see how they create ceramic vases and other master pieces in their kilns. In order to make products with different shapes, the artisans must perform many processes from choosing clay, drawing, dealing with and mixing additives, forming shapes, heating, and more to finish products. This work needs meticulous and hard-working artisans. Take photos with the craftsmen and buy gifts for your relatives or friends before returning to Hanoi.
