If you want to see an old town of Foshan, then you need to see this place. It's an historical village in a modern city with lots of construction going on. A nice place to escape from all the traffics and city area, and spend time with your family and friend.

The criss-crossed old streets with little shops offer a glimpse into life hundreds of years ago. Don't miss the dessert (soft tofu in ginger syrup, etc.) offered by a very friendly vendor right outside the side exit.

Worth visiting when you are in Foshan. Plenty of ancient deco all over the place. From temple to waterfall, shops, ceramic workshop etc.

If you like Chinese culture and pottery you should visit this place. It shows how Foshan ceramics used to be made in the past, it has a rich past and there is a lot to do around there for young and old.

This has to be one of the highlights when visiting Guangdong. As we were on a private tour, getting there was easy in a van. This is the Ancient Nanfeng Kiln which was commenced during the Ming Dynasty period. What is so fascinating about this place is not just the pottery itself or the ceramics but the huge Holy Banyan...

A small segment of an old pottery town Shiwan (or Quarry Bay) in 16C China tastefully restored and preserved featuring a (still functioning) kiln using methods centuries old. It is good for an hour an a half with arts and crafts products spotted in various town homes. The kiln site in located right next to a museum and exhibition center,... More

This attraction is more appropriately described as Nanfeng Ancient Village. They have restored the area - a beautifully preserved labyrinth of old style houses, workshops and galleries - to its former glory and is not simply a kiln. Wandering around the site, there is many winding lanes which take you to the two enormously long kilns used to fire Cantonese... More

Not very close to the city centre. It is a kind of little artists' village with many shops and art studios about ceramics and pottery. Pretty interesting place and nice atmosphere. Definitely worth if you are a fan of art in general. I did not get into the Ancient Klin just because I believed it was not worth the price... More

This is a wonderful place to spend the entire day. Take your time. Walk around the little village and explore the alley-ways. Then buy a little something to take home. There are literally a thousand ceramic and pottery shops in the area. There were surprisingly few people (and we were there on a Friday afternoon). It was also drizzling/light rain.... More

Got a taxi to the Ancient Kiln area. Many many stores selling the same thing, lovely old buildings and alleyways. There is a small lake at the back which was nice to walk around. Watch out for young people wanting to take your photo, a group of three approached us speaking very good English but when we asked why, they... More
