Half day Thanh Ha Pottery and Kim Bong carpentry village

Kim Bong Village is well known for its carpentry. Most of Hoi An’s Old Town architecture was made by their ancestors, dating back to the town’s heyday as a commercial port. In the 16th and 17th century, Thanh Ha was a thriving village, famous for earthenware that was sold in many provinces throughout Central Vietnam. It were the Thanh Ha villagers who made the bricks, tiles and floor slabs for old building in Hoi An and the surrounding areas. Nowadays, many old buildings in Hoi An need restoring and the Thanh Ha villagers are the only contractors that can provide materials exactly like the ones when the old port town prospered. Take a walking tour to the pier and joint a boat for a ride to Thanh Ha, observing the craft of shaping clay into vases, kettles and cookery vessels.
