In the 16th and 17th century Thanh Ha was a thriving village which was originated in Thanh Hoa province and developed vigorously in the later centuris, at the same time as the Hoi An port. This village made the bricks, tiles and floor slabs for the old buildings in Hoi An and the surround-ing areas. Nowadays many old buildings in Hoi An need restoring and the Thanh Ha villagers are the only contractors that can pro-vide standardized bricks, tiles and floor slabs exactly like the ones when the old port town prospered.

"Luckily we arrived just before the coach trips, go in the morning! This is a very traditional pottery village where old techniques are still in use. The people were keen to show us their work and we had a go at making a pot and saw how they make the clay whistles that are given to each visitor. It was much more interesting than expected and worth every dong of the 35000 entrance fee!"


"I am a potter from another country. On reading the comments above it appears that some people have no idea of the special nature of this place. A visit to the modern architecturally beautiful museum is to enjoy something of the past and present of this village. I too visited,made a pot and enjoyed time with the wonderful 86 year old woman throwing some amazing very large and small pieces sitting on the ground while her daughter kicked her simple wheel. This is living history and not something I have seen anywhere else in the world. Tourists should especially note that unless a piece is fired in the kiln it remains just a piece of clay and will simply melt away in water. As kilns will only be fired at a minimum of monthly you are not going to have your piece fired. Instead buy a fired piece and enjoy the history and tradition that went into making it."
