I was expecting to visit a number of ceramic factories but we were brought to only 1 factory by our guide, Tu, which according to her was the best one we bought quite a few ceramic pieces from this shop. She brought us to a 2nd factory as I requested. The next stop was an art shop where we had our lunch. The owner of the shop was very nice to cook lunch for us he gave a generous spread of spring rolls, pork soup, boiled chicken and fried potatoes and rice though we thought he charged us more than what we expect to pay we didn't expect for to pay for the meals of our guide and driver because it was not included in our voucher details. The art works where quite pricey too but the owner/artist gave us a small artwork of his, free of charge. Overall, the tour was just okay.
didn't rate this tour and definitely wouldn't recommend it tour friends we went to a laquerplace and then drove for miles out into the country to the ceramic village there were a whole street of shops selling ceramics we were taken to one walked around it and out again then drove for miles again to see a painting place never even stopped for a drink a definite no no from us
