    Jingdezhen will rock you
    I have been on a trip through China recently. Especially if it is the first trip to Asia as it was for me I would recommend a guided tour. China is just so huge and diverse, there is so much to see and it is impossible to see everything on one trip.

    When I first came to China in 2010 I was traveling alone for 5 weeks, but I did day trips that were arranged by the hostel I was staying in each city.

    Let us get a outline of Jingdezhen tour. The town was then called Xinping Town or Changnan for its location to the south of the Chang River.

    Pottery clay was in ample supply all around the town. More specifically, the Gaoling mountain is one of the few areas in China which provided pure kaolin, one of the essential ingredients for porcelain.

    Many Chine tour packages provide the route to visit the Gaoling Mountain these years. It will definitely impress you after your Jingdezhen tours.

    Another important material was fuel for the kilns. Pine wood was found in abundance around the town. The Chang River provided transport for raw material to the kilns as well as for later shipping of the finished products.

    It had grown into an industry by Tang dynasty. Old texts mention the Tao kilns, which are said to be named after the Tao family who founded the kilns and who made high-fired pottery already then known to be translucent and often referred to as artificial jade. Joining the Jingdezhen of China tour, you will have a nice trip.

    The town was thereafter known as Jingdezhen and the earlier name of Changnan was gradually forgotten.

    This decree did not result in the creation of new kilns but merely appointed established private kilns to add imperial wares to their production. Maybe we can live convenient without any this stuff, but we must remember what we used in our short history.
