Bat Trang ceramic village video is the latest movie clip I have shoot on my recent Hanoi cycling tour. Traveling by bicycle is a great way to see the suburbs of Hanoi, Hanoi countryside, rural villages, and to experience the rich culture of Vietnam. Guavas by the roadside, beautiful courtyards full of bonsai trees, the amazingly tall and narrow village houses, overlooking sprawling temples…Enjoy the video and let me know your thoughts.
Bat Trang ceramic village, a small village in the north of Vietnam, is about 13 km southwest of Hanoi center, on the other side of the Red River. Bat Trang ceramic village was said to be established in 14th century and the village is famous for ceramic and pottery products of high quality. Bat Trang pottery village specialized in large – scale pottery and porcelain production using traditional methods.
Upon arrival, an amazing view of all pottery and ceramic showrooms scattering all over the Bat Trang craft village. Stop at a small family factory to see how they manufacture their products. Watch the artisans form, paint and glaze their products and you will have a chance to practice your talent with wet clay and a mold. Or you can join the drawing class in the factory.
