Known as the “Porcelain City”, Jingdezhen was the designated source for all porcelain goods in the Imperial household for over 900 years. This city has a history of porcelain making dating back nearly two millennia. The majority of the world’s fine Chinese ceramics dating from that time can be traced to Jingdezhen’s workshops. Today Jingdezhen remains a major source of ceramic goods found around the world.
“Jingdezhen Ceramics Tour” gives us an opportunity to see the ancient wood-fired kilns, learn the history of China’s fine ceramics, in addition to see contemporary ceramic art studios.

The Detian Waterfall is located in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on the border between China and Vietnam. It is Asia’s largest waterfall and surrounded by picturesque karst peaks. Its water rushes down a three-tiered cliff with tremendous force; the largest fall is over 200 meters wide with an average flow of 50 cubic meters per second. On this trip we will discover this natural wonder!
Our trip starts with visiting the Anthropology Museum in Nanning. In addition to touring the Detian Waterfall and Tongling Grand Canyon, we will also visit the Mingshi idyllic garden on the border of the famous "China Vietnam border landscape gallery" and Zhuang ethnic villages.
