There is a kind of civilization I adore so much in China. Yes, it is Chinese pottery and porcelain. A trip to Beijing without a museum’s visit is maybe a shame. Apart from the fresh market hopping, I would suggest you spend a quality time to look at Chinese history as the way the Chinese Government would like us , the whole world to perceive them.
You maybe will understand Chinese’s mentality a bit from the collections and its building ‘s architecture. Even you have not yet understood any Beijing’s taxi drivers before and no taxi drivers there would have established any effort to understand you either. A true balance on earth !
Once you decide to visit National Museum of China, it is just nice to hop in this section to embrace the impressive collections of Ancient Chinese Porcelain. Nothing much to say, I just love beautiful patterns and hand-painted stories.
