Dan Kwian Village

Unless you're planning on taking a bas-relief home

What we say: 3 stars

About 15 km southeast of the city, the streets are lined with pottery stalls and shops.

The clay is harvested from the nearby Mun River, which colours it a rich rusty red. A bit further on, watch the pottery being made in the small village. The larger pieces are impressive, but those tailored to tourists are kitschy and disappointing.

The Kwian Museum displays a collection of old bullock-carts and farm equipment from yesteryear. You could spend an afternoon perusing the area, but there are better ways to soak up local culture.
