At the time of our visit, the dragon kiln was still under renovation ... and appears to have been under renovation for ovet a year now, accordibg to a local we spoke to. Nevertheless an interesting visit, the shops sell some interesting pieces (not the tacky touristy stuff though!!).

I had a wander around here on one of my days off, and it really was a delightful way to spend it. The kiln itself was out of action at the time but there are plenty of little shops where you can browse various ceramics. Some of the figurines on display close to the entrance, in what i am going...

So glad we went; totally love this place. Although the kiln is under renovation, you can still see part of it. We love browsing the pottery in the nearby shops as well as going through the ancient village. Couldn't help it but to purchase several pieces of the pottery. Wish we could have purchased more, if we had a way... More

You can still go there to browse pottery in nearby shops or look into some of the nearby historical buildings, but the kiln itself is under renovation. The pottery for sale falls into three categories: tacky tourist stuff, utilitarian pieces like flower pots, and works of art. Some of the miniatures were striking.

What did not like at all was the loud music they were playing. To communicate you had to almost shout at each other. I think the place would have a much greater feel of serentiy if it would be quiet. It was a rainy day when we went and some of the walking areas were very slippery. It is worth... More

Great place for lovers of history... enjoy your trip... take a taxi there, because you might get lost if you are traveling by bus... taxi would cost at least 30 RMB, since it's pretty far away from the center of the city... well-worth the cab ride, and do take tons of pics... it's an ancient site that gives one a...

The ancient Nanfeng kiln is well worth a visit. It forms part of the old city and there is plenty to see. Make a wish at the wishing tree when you enter - a fun thing to do! We bought some pottery from one of the potters at a great price. There are pottery shops outside the kiln, plus the... More

The Old stove is actually a small village, with 2 old kilns and a lot of artisan workshops around. Some of the workshops have amazing pieces of ceramic. The kilns not always work, and do not expect that everything is open and showing. In theory there are shows and demonstrations but hours are not respected, and unless tour groups are... More

One should know that Foshan is the ceramic capital of Guangdong if not the entire China. People from the world over come to this city to procure all forms of modern ceramic products especially flooring tiles and sanitary wares. I too came here to look for the newest designs and with some free time on our hands; decided to see... More
