Ban Chan Pottery Village
Watch the clay be transformed
What we say:
This village on the Mekong produces a variety of pottery from flower pots to funeral urns.
Here you can do more than just watch the artisans in action: With advance notice, you can participate and make your own pieces from natural clay for a truly original souvenir.
The village is just on the other side of the Mekong. Take the local car ferry across for 5,000 kip and follow the path heading southwest for a kilometre, or charter a boat to take you directly there for 20,000 kip. While there, you can arrange to set up the artistic experience for another day.
