Ok, I Know
One-Day Railway Trip at Yingge
Besides the old street culture and classic historical sites, Yingge and Sanxia have abundant cultural creative experience and artistic strengths hidden in the alleys. The experience of making their own potteries, indigo dyeing and other art works are the greatest memories visitors can have here. After leaving Yingge Station, first head to “Yingge Ceramics Museum” in which it provides introduction on the history of ceramics production, regular exhibitions and special exhibitions. Then, visit Sanxia Old Street, a place filled with the aroma of delicious gourmets. The featuring souvenir of “Golden Bull Horns” is a must-eat gourmet! The Qingshui Zhushi Temple is another spotlight of the old street. It is not only the religious center of local residents, it also preserves the memories of ordinary people.
