Gorgeous displays
Dec 2018
After a sort explanation about the types of jade, you can roam the display room. There is plenty of beautiful jade jewelry. There are figurines from very small to floor sized globes. There are also jade screens. The salespeople are courteous and helpful without being pushy.

Jade Factory in Xi'an
Feb 2018 • Couples
I am not quite sure that this was the same factory my wife and I visited during the Viking Yangtze river tour in 5/2016 .
The factory was large, sumptuous with lot of expensive jades displayed on the shelves, As a novice in jade business, we relied on salesperson for the value of jades, the hand carving process, the warranty, etc...We were surrounded by a team composed of several salesmen, assistant manager, manager, and supervisor?!We were under a lot of pressure to buy things. The price of jade was quite expensive. We bargained it down to 1/3 of asking price. Finally, we were convinced by the tour guide that this was an unique opportunity to own a piece of art which would be hard to find somewhere else. We ended up buying a green, hand carved lion jade for >$US 9000. We got a certificate of warranty for for the genuinity of the product. This was a gift. The person we gave the jade to was happy and appreciated the value of the gift
We checked the same lion jade at online stores, and we found that they were not that expensive. The price was about 1/4-1/5 of what we paid for!!

Fun way to shop for Jade
Nov 2018 • Friends
The jade shopping in China can be very challenging . Everyone is selling jade and assures the consumer they have the best . The staff was assertive and customer friendly . They had a wide variety of price choices for their products . I enjoyed shopping here !!

Ohhh the beautiful jade
Nov 2018 • Friends
What an exciting visit. We were able to watch workers carve and polish jade pieces to sell in the shop/gallery. So many items for every price range. If going I suggest saving money to buy a jade bagel for the special lady in your life. It is an investment that can be passed down from one generation to the next

Great jade place in Xi'an
Sep 2018 • Friends
This is a state-operated place that exhibits, makes(?), & sells jade items. The museum pieces are very impressive, and worth the visit, even if not shopping for jade. The guide also gives a short tutorial on jade - quality, carving, history, etc. The sales operation had everything from "souvenir quality" small items to VERY expensive heirloom quality pieces (small as earrings, large as 100kg+ statues). The broad selections would satisfy any possible shopping need. Cards are accepted, and authenticity certificates (jade quality grade) are provided.

Stunning objects of art!
Apr 2018 • Couples
At first I didn't like Sinorama's choice of places to be visited that contained shopping possibilities. I was used to be brought to various (exhibition/shopping) places (chosen by tour leader) with one aim only: make visitors spend as much as possible! Of course - percentage for tour leader was always arranged.
I may be wrong but this time (20 days China Tour by Sinorama) I had a feeling that the only aim was to inform and show westerners all aspects of Chinese enchanting history, culture and art. Although art objects made of jade were familiar to me (seen in other South-East Asia countries) I admit that I was stunned with exhibits I saw at this place. I am not a jade fan and I didn't buy anything but nevertheless I admired people that work so patiently with incredible precision to make exceptional works of art. In my opinion this is the place to be visited!

Some information and stunning art work displays!
May 2018 • Couples
Like the other 'factories' we attended on our tour, this one provided some information on how to determine the quality of jade and also allowed us into a room where a number of 'carvers' were set up working on various pieces. We then went to the showroom where there are lots of sales people and ranges of quality of jade. We found the prices quite expensive, but perhaps for the quality, they were a reasonable range. Regardless, we found the information and displays of interest.

Lovely Jade Store
Oct 2017 • Couples
A brief background on Jade mining and production and then into the store which was full of every conceivable type of Jade sculptures and jewellery. Bottom line it is a hard sell store but we were happy to buy. Certainly the best range of Jade we saw in China.

Good jade high prices
Sep 2017 • Couples
We were excited to go see a Jade factory and wanted to purchase some for us and some gifts. When we arrived they showed you a little on the quality of jade and some demonstrations of how it it carved. This was very interesting. Then comes the "showroom". They start you out trying to sell you the most expensive jade that they have, the prices were not discounted and I felt too expensive. Then set of tables goes to a lower grade and price. There are showcases that have some really fantastic items in them which was great to look at but no way to pack and bring back. They said that it could be shipped but if something happened in shipping what then? Overall I though that this place was nice to visit but not for buying.

Really just a jade store
Oct 2017 • Friends
This was billed to us as a Jade Museum. We received a nice quick explanation of different types of Jade and why they cost different amounts. But then it was all about shopping. Plenty of stuff to see, but nothing at all special beyond the selection. So if you want to shop, by all means. Don't expect to learn much though.
