Visiting Bat Trang village, there are two things you must try including making ceramic objects by yourselves and going to the ceramic market. The beautiful weather created the advantages for us to try both mentioned things and we were extremely excited with new experiences.
– The first, making ceramics
+ Location: About 20m from the pottery market ( No 122, Hamlet No 5, Bat Trang Village)
Note: We knew the place to knead ceramics thanks to the introduction of very kind sellers of tiny tea-shops along the street. The owner of pottery kiln is so friendly and enthusiastic. You can park at the ceramics market and then walk to the place where allows to practice kneading ceramics. Along the street, there are a huge number of attractive ceramics shops. Do not miss them!
+ Practice: Arriving to the destination, we were instructed detailedly by the owner. After that, we could practice promptly right here. We believe this can be an unforgettable memory of you, if you have the chance to come.
You will be guided the particular process of making a complete object. Such the long process, but we summarize it into 3 simple steps: Stroke – Knead – Draw. A raw product will be dried in 30 minutes. Finally, you will get a lovely object to bring to home like that.
+ Price: $2/person (including products to bring to home)
+ Review: 5/5 points
– The second, going to the ceramics market
+ After making the potteries, we came back to sightsee the ceramics market and buy something. My impression here was that this place was extremely large with a variety of products. You may be shocked by the huge number of ceramic products here and their beauty.
