China, and especially Beijing, can get hectic from time to time – peace and quiet is especially hard to find in a Chinese metropolis! So if you’re looking for a way to relieve some stress and kick back for the weekend, a trip to chilled out Jingdezhen is the perfect solution.
Known as the Porcelain Capital, Jingdezhen has been producing world famous Chinese pottery for more than 1700 years. The Chinese Government named it as an ‘outstanding civilization & health city’ in 2007 which basically means it’s an excellent place to relax, explore and try your hand at controlling a pottery wheel.
We’ll take the overnight train to nearby Jiujang before arriving in Jingdezhen and heading straight to a pottery class – if you haven’t tried it before, it’s trickier than it looks…but your expert instructor will help you to create a pretty souvenir.
After a night exploring the city we’ll head on to Yaoli, a beautifully preserved old town where we’ll spend the afternoon in a hot springs resort pampering ourselves, in preparation for the return train to Beijing.
The perfect way to chill out and try your hand at a new skill, SnapAdventures’ Jingdezhen tour will show you a different side of China.
