An hour drive from Guangzhou one arrives at Foshan and then the famous Shiwan Ceramics Factory.Foshan is famous for Bruce Lee-Kungfu and of course Ceramics.You need to keep at least four hours aside for this lovely tour. The place has a museum full of ancient artifacts from the Tang dynasty all made from wood and porcelain. Seeing Porcelain in so many forms is very enlightening.There is also an old factory which allows one to tour and see how Porcelain was made in olden days - as old as 1000 years. One can see the difference between machine and hand made porcelain which is a super experience.Needless to say one can shop a lot of porcelain decoration items and larger items can also be shipped if required. Small lanes are dotted with shops where craftsmen are busy in their trade, can try your hand at making too. Aviod a sunny day as it can get very hot but a great place to travel, make an hand or a feet impression on wet clay. Great photo opportunities in front of Bruce Lee Statues and the famous three wise men of China(depicting Health, Wealth and Happiness). Do visit this place and you will not regret it.
