Villages of the Red River Delta
The villages of the Red River Delta are famous for their pottery and ceramics. Tho Ha village, for instance, was once a major center for pottery and is also famous for rice paper manufacturing. Other Red River Delta villages where you can see clay artisans at work are Bat Trang, Phu Long and Chu Dao. Pottery is not the only reason to visit these villages. Amid the markets and beautiful old buildings, it's possible to experience a traditional Vietnamese way of life that manages to survive in a rapidly changing world.
