When you travel to China, take a step outside of the hustle and bustle of the city to slow down and take in some real history.

See China's Porcelain Village (Ci Qi Kou) in Chongqing

It is time to familiarize yourself with one of the world's greatest and oldest cultures. Take some time to enjoy a bit of tea at a cafe' in Ci Qi Kou or China's Porcelain Village.

Find yourself on a simple road in China. Exploring the landscape and smiling at the people as you pass by one shop, then another before sitting down to enjoy some tea. You can wander some more through the village before deciding to go back to your hotel room and dream of all the things you will buy the next day.

There are not many places as filled with unique and intriguing history like the porcelain village. There are plenty of tea bars; each with its own taste and style. Eateries can be found with flavors to enlighten a palate and create a wonderful tango on your taste buds.

Don't forget about the porcelain for which the village has been named. Artists by the drove have come and stayed or just visited Ci Qi Kou just to be able to design something of their own.

Where there is art there are bound to be artists. There could be nothing more mesmerizing than an artist at work on a project. These artists are passionate about what they create and lovingly design each and every piece.

Find some of the history as you gaze upon the buildings and structures. Many are from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The tales these buildings can tell at a glance are geared to the imagination of the traveler. Immerse yourself in the old time look and feel of the village.

As a consumer, you look at porcelain products almost everyday. There is something to be said for true artistry at work. You know where the beauty lies, now go and behold the things you know you want to see.
