This handicraft village is about 13 kilometers south east of Hanoi center, on the other side of Chuong Duong bridge. It is famous for producing a unique style of ceramics called Bat Trang Porcelain. Up to present, Bat Trang has still been operating and developing ceaselessly. It currently has a population of 6,500, including some 1,300 ceramics production households that operate more than 2,000 kilns. More than 30 companies are also producing and trading ceramics in Bat Trang and the village is buzzing with activities.

You can even try to make your own products for a little amount of fee, with the careful instruction of the artisans.
