Ban Chan

This village is famous for its traditional pottery-making, where you can watch pots being hand-thrown and fired in old ovens. The village’s lamps and pots decorate the small streets of Luang Prabang’s old town, and are known all over northern Laos. Ban Chan is located in Chomphet District, across the Mekong River and to the south. It can be by boat in 15 minutes, or by taking a boat across to Xieng Mene and walking downstream along the river for 25 minutes.
