We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

History: Among the first group of historic and cultural cities, Jingdezhen is hailed as “the Capital of Porcelain” of China, as well as of the globe. If we proclaim that porcelain is the among the greatest inventions of Han Nationality, then we will definitely emphasize that Jiangdezhen is the exact representative of Chinese Porcelain.

In Tang Dynasty (618-907), owing to the premium quality of the soil in the southern region of Jiangxi Province, local residents also combined the advantages of the celadon in south and the white ware in north, initiatively established a bluish white porcelain with a unique temperament. The porcelain is of crystal and moistening feature, which gained a name of “jadeware” and exported enormously to European countries.

During the period of Jingde in Song Dynasty (920-1279), the prefecture was designated as Jingde County after the reigh title with regard of its premium quality of porcelain, which remained ever since. As it was also the place for the firing of “imperial porcelain”, 4 Chinese characters, “Jing De Yu Zhi”, was inscribed on each bottom of the porcelain as a symbol. A emormous scale of Guan wares were also included here during Ming and Qing Dynasty.

Climate: Jingdezhen belongs to the region featured by subtropical monsoon climate, with affluent sun shine as well as ample precipitation annually. The weather is characterized by distinctive 4 seasons and humid and moderate climate.
