We'll first stop at a village close to Dhamrai, a small town near Dhaka. Dhamrai is famous for metal craft, where we visit a workshop and atelier for metallurgy. Next, we'll head to the nearby pottery village to visit the clay shop and learn about the pottery-making process.

We recommended combining this trip with Savar. We can start our trip with a visit to the National Martyrs' Memorial at Savar, since it's on the way. We can also end the trip with a visit to our children's shelter in Savar.

The Dhamrai area is located 45 km to the northeast of Dhaka, past Savar, about 2-4 hours drive.
