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.
