“Fascinating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Try not to go in the summer as the heat is unbearable. However I would hire an English guide to explain the history. There are several outside offering their services, just not sure how good they are.

Very hot in Summer, wear a hat, take an umbrella, or go early in the morning to avoid an uncomfortable journey.

“It is huge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

When I visited it it was really crowed , and it also difficult to take pictures inside the building. Talking to the local English speaker he suggest me a detour to see the porcelain collection in a much quieter zone. The chinese takes their own beverages from outside because they are a little cheaper (3 vs 5 yuan for half litre ), I bought the 2 litre for 5 yuan at the grocery store in front of my hotel. You should avoid the toiled, at least the male ones.
