Visited as part of a mandatory shopping opportunity with a tour. The first part was a 30 minute or so presentation about silk and the store’s products. The presenter was quite funny and kept things interesting. She “diagnosed” people as having too much or too little moisture based on the appearance of their hands. (Silly and meaningless. Sleeping on silk allegedly cures this issue. ) Following the presentation we visited the bedding showroom where all sorts of extreme deals were offered. Essentially for about $500 USD you would get a king size bedding set that included a mattress pad, duvet, duvet cover, pillow cases, sheet or sheets (I lost track) plus a free suitcase and another comforter or duvet or something and more pillowcases. Silk pillows were $100 for a set of two. I have no idea of the quality. I priced silk bedding when I got home and of what they sell is good quality, then it is a very good deal. Everything is vacuum packed to fit in luggage. Colors were attractive and there was a lot to choose from. I would strongly suggest pricing items and home and learning about quality before your visit. After that we moved to the second showroom with clothing and souvenirs. There is a variety of designer fakes (made on original manufacturers equipment and supplies) for fairly high prices. This is better quality than you will find at most fake markets (unless you ask special for it) and priced accordingly. Basically, you can get a Burberry scarf or coat for maybe 20% of the cost of the real item (so the coats are still hundreds of dollars). Quality appeared good. Depending on how you feel about protection of copyrights and intellectual property will shape your buying experience. There were sweaters, shirts, etc. Fairly expensive in my book as I don’t particularly care about designer labels. There was also a section of smaller touristy items like small scarfs, chopstick sets, etc. Prices were 4-5x higher than you can get at other stores without bargaining. In short: bedding may be a good deal depending on quality. Fake designer clothing is well made and cheaper than the real stuff. “Tourist” souvenir I expensive items and very marked up.

So with the tour we are booked into these visits. It would not be something I would book my self. The silk part is ok however they want us to buy buy buy and it is all about the money.. big shame as I would have loved to see how the silk items were made. The food was also bad. I call it white Chinese food. It’s what they think we eat in Australia and it’s rubbish.

One of the stops on our China tour iteinary. First we had 20 minutes presentation about what are the uses and products of silk. Then walked to next building, first floor is a silk musume showing the process of making silk products and display of silk clothings & beddings. 2nd floor is the retail store for selling all kind of silk merchandise. Majority customers are tourists. Price..... a little bit overpriced compared to local shops. 3rd floor, a Chinese restaurant.

Great factory tour and no sales push at the end. There is a retail store if you want silk products but you are not followed around and pestered if you don't want anything.
