Program details

For thousands of years, the local villagers living in the Red River Delta have preserved their traditions, in particular pottery and wood block painting. At a glance, you will experience the daily activities of the villagers. Take a short drive to Bat Trang village, located about 12 km southeast of Hanoi. It was founded in the 16th century and features over 800 family operated and industrial kilns fired with wood and coal. They specialize in large-scale pottery and porcelain production using traditional methods. Stop at a small family factory to see how they manufacture their products! Watch the artisans paint and glaze their products and you will have a chance to practice your talent with wet clay and a mould, or you can join the drawing class in the factory. You will then have free time to wander around the village and then transfer back to Hanoi for lunch. A Vietnamese lunch will be served at a local restaurant, famous for hot pot varieties and Vietnamese rice wine. After lunch, transfer to the wooden-block painting village of Dong Ho, one of the most famous villages in Vietnam. Visit one of the artists, who has been awarded Gold-Hand prize for his works! The artist will show you how to do the block painting. Then return to Hanoi.
