Bat Trang Ceramic Village
An old, well-established village in Gia Lam district of Hanoi, about 13 km from central Hanoi, on the east bank of the Red river. Currently, this is probably the most famous village in the traditional ceramic industry. In fact, Bat Trang produces a unique style of ceramics called porcelain. Moreover, Bat Trang is well known throughout Vietnam for its beautiful ceramics, the production started in the 14th century. Nowadays, the village uses gas or electric instead of coal to reduce pollution. Many shops at the village entrance sell Bat Trang and also Chinese ceramic products. In addition, you could take a quick lesson to learn how to form a product from clay.
Dong Ho Traditional Painting Village
In Song Ho Commune, Thuan Thanh district, Bac Ninh province. 35km East from Hanoi, on the Southern bank of the Duong river. Nobody knows when this village started the production of folk woodcut painting, but at least 21 generations ago. Dong Ho paintings are mainly bought and displayed on the occasion of Tet – Vietnamese New Year, contents of pictures are often humorous, the optimist with many bright and powerful colours like red, yellow or white. Unfortunately, the current painting products are as not good as before with the use of more chemical materials. Most of the people in the village make votive paper, a very good business with a better earning.

Over 1,000 years ago Lady A Nha Thi Nuong started the business, and together with Bat Trang ceramic village, the productions continue till now.
