Red Kingdom of Mekong Delta

Mang Thit pottery brick village, aka the Red Kingdom of the Mekong Delta region, is located on the picturesque Co Chien river and has an incredibly striking red color in the center of the river. The village runs for more than 30 kilometers in Vinh Long city, Long Ho and Mang Thit districts. Each kiln roof and brick row merges in with the river's natural surroundings, giving this a one-of-a-kind check-in location.

Making bricks was a common practice in this area from the beginning. With abundant soil resources, a huge amount of alluvium from the Cuu Long stream has accumulated over many years, forming valuable clay deposits. Since then, Vinh Long residents have masterfully kneaded and transformed them into one-of-a-kind bricks and ceramic goods since then.

Unglazed pottery is a distinctive feature of the ceramic tile profession in Vinh Long. Rice husk, a common product in wet rice fields, is used as a fuel. Furthermore, because of the alum contamination of this unique red clay, when burnt, Vinh Long red pottery frequently exhibits white alum veins.
