Attraction Details :
Ban Don Kai Dee in Krathum Baen District of Samut Sakhon Province is the premiere location where Thailand’s famed Benjarong porcelain is fired. The ceramics produced here are of the finest quality and are much sought after by collectors, universally admired for the beauty and grace of their unique form, design, and color. Ban Don Kai Dee in particular is known for its design, named Sakharabenjayamanee, or the Five-coloured Gemstones of Sakhon City, with its blue-green color representing the city’s coastal fishing history.
The locals of Ban Don Kai Dee have formed a thriving handicraft group. The hospitable villagers welcome visitors with not only beautiful wares on offer, but also interactive activities. The craft of Benjarong porcelain is demonstrated eagerly to tourists, and visitors may also enjoy tours of the village and visits to the nearby orchards and coast. Standard homestays at very reasonable prices, with food included, are offered by many local families.
To get to the village, take Highway 35 (Thon Buri-Pak Tho) and turn left onto Highway 3091. Ban Don Kai Dee is 2.2 kilometers from the clock tower.
