We enjoyed the half day in Jingdezhen Ceramic Exposition which is an absolute must for everybody coming to Jingdezhen - unfortunately, there are limited other attractions in town ...

The setting is in a beautiful garden and perfumed with osmanthus flower which was in bloom when we were there. The highlight to me is to see the different types of kilns over the centuries. This place is so ancient and has been a pottery production place from as long ago as the Yuan dynasty (13 century AD), followed through to Ming and then Qing empires and until now. When we were there, one of the wood fired kilns had only been undergoing the cooling down process, which took days. It is exciting to be so closed to something so ancient and which is still being utilised to make pottery today. Chinese pottery is so old and it reached perfection so many centuries ago, that it really gives me the goose bumps to see the process perfected to create the exquisite china. Definitely worth a visit to this beautiful place and learn the history of porcelain, pottery, ceramics, china. We came here on a hired car with driver.

The site was close to the town centre. Tickets were easy to purchase and once inside it was easy to navigate around the site. The first workshop was very interesting. The various stages of porcelain production were on display. It was great to see first hand how the items were produced. The Information available was also in English.

It is a nice set up, no air-condition, quite interesting to look at. The english version is probably translated by google translate. I think the only google took which is working in china if you end it with .cn

We received free admissions with passports(I think for age). We spent 150 yuan for a private 1 and a half English tour with an on site guide without reservations. The demonstrations and the actual and reconstructed kilns are the key features. The place is huge and confusing for non Chinese speakers. There is shopping to suit all budgets. There was no pressure to buy.
