What people are saying:

Wonderful! The spirit of this place is glory of the ceramic! This is not the a secret that Foshan was the ancient famous center of ceramic production. This place introduces us the ways how it had been done and local lifestyle. Well preserved buildings and narrow streets are warmly welcome explorers. The Big Kiln is huge(flower corridor in photo is the kiln incide)!
