And it is amazing that this ancient kiln still works. Visitors can enjoy an ever fascinating experience to make pottery by their own in this fascinating national treasure.

Nanhai Kwan-yin Temple is in Nanguo Peach Garden, one of the best places to visit relying on its aloofness to the hustle and bustle area of Foshan.

Not distant from the temple, Bus No.222, 238, 254, 256 can take visitors to the CCTV Nanhai Movie & TV Town, one of the four Movies & TV bases of China Central Television, comprising three scenic spots and one performing area epitomizing both brilliant past and present of the city.
