Bat Trang Ceramic Village

Bat Trang Ceramic Village is a famous destination in Hanoi. With more than 7 centuries history, it has plenty of exclusive artworks crafted by skillful craftmen

Whether you are looking for an outdoor adventure or a contemporary city break, Bat Trang is a notable place of interest in Hanoi. The seven-century old pottery village is situated on the left bank of the Red River, about 10km away from the center of Hanoi. You may feel like it is just a small town, but don’t let its size fool you: its small workshops pack a serious pottery punch.

There is a variety of shapes, colors, designs, and sizes of pottery available in Bat Trang, partly because each family has their own pottery making techniques. Skillful potters use their hands to mould the exact same mold into different shapes. But there are still some common themes in the designs traced on the ceramics once they have been shaped.

Visit the ancient village on the bank of the Red River to experience the rural life and the profusion of pottery and ceramic wares. Try to make your own pottery or stop by street side shops to find your own gifts for family or friends.
