Yixing is rather industrial and unattractive and there's no particular reason for a foreign tourist to come here except to visit the home of the Yixing tea pot. The reasonably new Yixing Railway Station on the Hangzhou-Nanjing line is about 9-10 km from the museum. You can take a taxi, or if you go to the Tourist Centre next to the station to the west they will point you to the bus to get on to - Dingshan bus, 2 RMB. Best to use the GPS map on your smartphone to identify the stop to get off at if your chinese like mine is inadequate. The museum is up a long grand driveway. On the north side are galleries of some master potters where you can buy pots, bargaining hard. On the main road the bus went down and along some side streets are various shops selling pots as well.

This is an area of a few street wide by a few streets across. its a must see and certainly a great please to pick up a few souvenirs that are not tacky or wasteful. you can get tea pots, cups mugs sets and full tea sets. there a few places that you can buy the electric set up for table top which is really great. many small restaurants are near by and a good hotel in the facility.

Dingshu Town 丁蜀镇 and Dingshan Town 丁山镇 run together about a 50 Yuan taxi ride from Yixing City 宜兴市。 This is the place to buy a fine clay teapot, to use in making gongfu style tea 功夫茶。They are small and made from the local special clay 宜兴紫砂。They are famous throughout China. Dozens of small shops are located side by side in this area. It isn't just a single museum. Look a lot of the items before you buy. Remember to bargain. A well made teapot here will cost you a fraction of what it would in Shanghai.
