This is worth a visit just to experience the size of the kilns and the fact that they are still in one piece. The pottery and ceramics that are on view are amazing considering the old style and would even better some of the most...More

This is a very interesting place to visit ceramics artists and their work. They’ve a long history of kiln work and many small stores. There is a small entrance fee but well worth it.

It’s a place where you can see how pottery is made, entrance fee is needed. Outside the kiln, there’s a street where you can shop for pottery like vase, tea set and no entrance fee is needed.

I really loved the little streets and pottery. You can also do some pottery yourself. Entry fee is RMB25 and you get a wristband so you can go me and go as you like.

The signs posted throughout the area, use the name Ancient Nanfeng Kiln (not Nanfeng Ancient Kiln). Ancient Nanfeng Kiln is comprised of at least three areas, being a Ancient Nanfeng Kiln shopping area (no entry fee), Ancient Nanfeng Kiln Museum (entry fee), and Guangdong Shiwan...More
