It was an old town with history. But like a lot of old towns in China, Ci Qi Kou is very commercialised. You'd find a lot of stores for souvenirs and snacks there. Not much about culture is emphasised. You can easily finish the visit...More

While this area is relatively new it is still a fun place to wander around if you like seeing various foodstuffs etc. There were very few western tourists when we visited and it seems it has an appeal to anyone. Get there early to avoid...More

5 mins walk from the train. Very crowded with tour groups. It is more like a shopping market with many eateries and repeated souvenir shops. Sadly with very little traces of it being a pottery village. Do try the crab meat dumpling. Over rated ground...More

Lots of local snacks on offer, problem is that they are all similar to each other. I recommend the Indian sweet roti. It was delicious. Good place for souvenirs. Long Street but fun. Has it's own MTR station
