Beautiful Lampang, home town of ceramics

In the heart of Thailand there rises Lampang, a small city of 50,000 people famous for ceramics.
The land is rich of kaolinite, a white stone that once crushed and made in powder, is important to create the amazing ceramics as rice bowls, plates, vases, jars and sauce dispensers.
I have been there to visit the city and try the amazing coffee of the region, there I found out that Indra ceramics and other factories have actively produced for almost 90 years ceramics.
Once a small family business brought by a Chinese family, now they are the biggest producers of articles for tableware and hospitality business.
Symbol of the city is the running rooster, a bird you will find depicted in many places. Take time to visit this beautiful hidden paradise.
