Yingge, the Ceramics Town

1/17/09

After several hours of doodling in San-Shia, P and I decided to move on to Yingge, a town 10 minutes drive away from San-Shia. Yingge is famous the entire Island over for its fine ceramics and procelain products. We went to the downtown area and saw various b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l ceramics goods, especially fine china tableware. It made me think of my own kitchen back in the US of A and I itched to pick up a tea cup, a bowl, a something that I can bring with me as a souvenior for today's outting. Alas, I cannot buy anything right now lest we run out of space that the kitchen here at home is cramped as it is.

Curiously I didn't take any pictures while in Yingge; perhaps due to the fact that the main street in Yingge was not as scenic as San-Shia; and then one is not allowed to take pictures inside of these stores.

Still we had a lot of fun walking down the street, hitting every store and browsing through various kinds of dishes, tea pots, vases, art pieces, wall hangings...and various porcelain things.

I found that the Yingge Township has an excellent website. It's worth a visit. http://www.yingge.tpc.gov.tw/yingge_english/index.html
