8th Fuliang Tea Culture Festival kicks off in Jingdezhen

The 8th Fuliang Tea Culture Festival kicks off in Fuliang county, Jingdezhen city, Jiangxi province, during the May Day holidays, and besides the grand shows at its opening ceremony, a series of themed events such as tea tasting, folk song performances and lantern riddles can be enjoyed at the ancient town of Yaoli, the Wanghu resort and Raonan porcelain sites - the three most popular tourist destinations.

Yaoli is famous for its porcelain and tea. Here you can experience the whole process of tea making, and enjoy the cheerful folk dances and singing. At the porcelain theme park, you must not miss the opportunity of trying your hand at throwing a piece of porcelain of your own.

While hanging around in Yaoli, you may encounter Buddhist monks with the centuries-old Gaojichanlin Temple praying and freeing fish by the side of Yaohe River, where fishing has been prohibited for hundreds of years.

Meanwhile, a tea-tasting event is going on in the Wanghu forest resort. It will be a pleasant experience to enjoy tea, music from porcelain instruments and the wonderful scenery at the same time.

Visitors can first get to Jingdezhen - the town of porcelain - either by plane, train or bus, and then head to Yaoli, 50 km away from Jingdezhen, by bus.
