Away Travel - Past Trips

Jingdezhen Ceramics Tour

Situated in Jiangxi Province in a beautiful mountainous area, Jingdezhen, known as the “Porcelain Capital of China,” is rich in the natural resources required for porcelain production. The local potters have been practicing their craft for over 1700 years. On this trip we will visit the Ancient Kiln Park, the Ancient Dragon Kilns in Yaoli Village, the Friday Night Market, and the Saturday Morning Market. Our tour guide, Leslie Jian, is an experienced potter herself. She will provide us with inside knowledge regarding ceramic production. Plenty of shopping time is planned so we are able to bring back unique and beautiful porcelain pieces.

Harbin

– Ice and Snow Wonderland

The Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival is renowned, world-wide! It is a winter spectacle unlike anything else in the world and is a “must-see” during your stay in China. Thousands of workers recreate famous landmarks and other buildings using crystal-clear blocks of ice from the local river. Colorful, glittering ice sculptures decorate this northern snowy city that is nicknamed “China’s Moscow” due to its historic Russian influence. Make 2020 the year you experience the wonder and amazement of this event for yourself. This is truly a WOW destination!
