You will then visit the excellent Ethnology Museum for an overview of Vietnam's 54 distinct ethnic groups.

In the afternoon, you head to Bat Trang village – a premier ceramics centre 15 km northeast of the city centre. While the upper side is quite commercialized and focuses on glazed ceramic items, the riverside 'ancient' village leans more towards earthenware and pottery products. There’re opportunities to try your hand on making our own products, or wandering around its large ceramics market.
