( - Visit the largest pottery village of Cham people



Bau Truc in central Vietnam is worth visiting as it offers travelers an opportunity to observe a unique way of making pottery items and purchase pottery household appliances of different shapes.


To learn how products are made at the largest traditional pottery village of Cham people, visitors have to ride a motorcycle or travel by car through a distance of 15 kilometers from Phan Rang City in the central coastal province of Ninh Thuan. There, many locals of Phuoc Dan Town in Ninh Phuoc District  still keep a traditional technique of making pottery without having to use a spinning as they use their hands only to craft items from a mixture of clay and sand.
After pottery products are molded, they will be dried in the sun and then burned in a kiln which is fued by paddy straw or wood overnight to become hard and read for use. There is a wide selection of items available in various designs and colors for visitors to choose.
Festival honours Lang Co as world beautiful bay
The central province of Thua Thien-Hue will organise a festival on April 24-25 to introduce its Lang Co Bay as one of the most beautiful bays of the world.
Lying between Hue and Danang cities, Lang Co is one of the major tourist destinations in the central region, with luxury seaside resorts, crystal-clear water, and a diversified and rich ecosystem.
Lang Co was recognised as the 30th member of the “World’s Most Beautiful Bays” club (Worldbays Club) in 2009, and it is Vietnam’s third bay after Ha Long and Nha Trang admitted to the club.
The festival will include activities to promote economic and cultural values of Lang Co Bay, as well as its tourism potential.
