“An eye opener for historians”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

It is an eye opener, a must go for any traveller who loves history. But you need to pay for a local guide to enjoy its rich history. There is a wishing tree where you can buy red strings to tie on it. My wish actually came true.

“The ancient dragon kiln is under renovation”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

You can still go there to browse pottery in nearby shops or look into some of the nearby historical buildings, but the kiln itself is under renovation.

The pottery for sale falls into three categories: tacky tourist stuff, utilitarian pieces like flower pots, and works of art. Some of the miniatures were striking.

“Very slippery on a rainy day”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

What did not like at all was the loud music they were playing. To communicate you had to almost shout at each other. I think the place would have a much greater feel of serentiy if it would be quiet.
It was a rainy day when we went and some of the walking areas were very slippery. It is worth while to visit the site.
It looked like there was a workshop for visitors set up. At least we saw people that looked like visitors try to make pottery.
There are plenty of stores around if you feel like buying pottery.
Entrance fee RMB 25 p.P. If you also plan to visit Zu Miao Temple which is RMB 20 p.P. you can get a combo ticket for RMB 35.

“Ancient China”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Is great to see all the traditional pottery from long time ago. Nice for a walk. Many shops there to buy souvenirs and a nice artificial lake.

“A remarkable site...”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Great place for lovers of history... enjoy your trip... take a taxi there, because you might get lost if you are traveling by bus... taxi would cost at least 30 RMB, since it's pretty far away from the center of the city... well-worth the cab ride, and do take tons of pics... it's an ancient site that gives one a great glimpse into a Chinese/Cantonese village's past, and truly, truly remarkable that it's so well-preserved...
