Explore the historic beauty of Chinese folk art during this scenic and informative half-day visit to Tianjin.

Depart the pier for the drive to downtown Tianjin. Your fist stop will be the workshop of the Tianjin Clay Figurine Factory. The art of painting Zhang clay figures dates back over 140 years, and is named after its creator, Zhang Ming-Shan. It is characterized by a combination of clay models and colored paintings, with the vividly-colored figurines depicting various gestures and expressions.

Next, you will proceed for a visit to the famous workshop of Yangliuqing New Year pictures. The New Year picture is a unique art form in China that boasts a long history and far-reaching influence. The Yangliuqing Spring Festival pictures were first created in the late years of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), and named after the old town of Yangliuqing. These atmospheric pictures are characterized by colored woodcut prints and manual color painting with vivid figures.

Following your visit, you will rejoin your coach for the return drive to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes some moderate walking and there are steps to negotiate at the figurine factory. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
