Presentation

Located 10 kilometers from the center of Nan city, the Baan Bo Suak community has several old pottery kilns. No more in use, they are historical remains but you can visit the Huen Ban Suak Saen-Cheun Museum and if you're lucky, you'll be there at the same time as students from neighboring schools learning potter's work. At 20 meters from the junction leading to the museum on road 4004, there is a center where you can see a pottery workshop and a person who will show you how to do. In theory, you can even try and make your own pieces but you will have to come with someone who will translate the instructions (a tuk-tuk driver who speaks good English for example) because here, like in the neighboring museum, no one speaks english. It is the the flaw of this place that foreign tourists never visit. But it may worth stopping there on the way in or the way back to the Ban Nawarat's amazing little spa or when you go see the weavers at work in Ban Sao Luang 10 kilometers away. But do not come just for Ban Bo Suak without a guide or a Thai who can be you interpreter, you could be disappointed.

Practical information about Ban Bo Suak Community

The small center at the edge of the road 4004 has no one to show you the pottery making process on Sundays and public holidays. There is no public transport to get here, you will have to come by your own or hire a tuk-tuk from the city. While you are in the area, go to the sum gai spa in Ban Nawarat a few kilometers further and to see the weavers at work at Baan Sao Luang a little further.
