Located on the left bank of Hong River and about 10 km from Hanoi, the Bat Trang ceramics village is a 500-year-old village, and the most famous and long-standing pottery village in Vietnam.
It is famous for producing a unique style of ceramics called Bat Trang Porcelain. Since the 15th century, ceramic house-utensils made by the Bat Trang village were also among the tributes to Chinese kings.
Bat Trang ceramics have also been shipped to many countries, such as Japan, the Republic of Korea, the US and EU member countries. Many ancient ceramics of Bat Trang are being kept in major museums in the world, such as the Royaux museum in Belgium and the Guimet museum in France.
Up to present, Ba Trang Pottery Village has still been operating and developing ceaselessly. The Bat Trang village festival is held annually at the middle of the second month according to the lunar calendar, which usually lasts for 7 days.
