I totally disagree with lady who advised not to buy duvet - I bought whole set (+cover+pillows+pillow covers) and ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM! The duvet is like a feather and anchors well inside cover with proper duvet clips. It is the WARMEST I have experienced -...More

An entertaining and educative experience! The people here explain the process of making silk, from silk worm right through to weaving and dyeing. You can also buy stuff, at very very reasonable prices. I really regret not having bought more stuff! They are quite willing...More

We had a tour guide and they decided to take us. Then main goal is to sell you Silk Products, that being said we learned how silk is done witch is very interesting. We bought some good bed linens, witch had a good price.

Loved this visit. Lots of great information and demonstrations of silk production. We bought a silk bed quilt which we just love. Pricing and quality better than in Nanjing Road shops. Highly recommended place to visit, learn and shop.

We enjoyed the information provided about the silk worms and how the cocoons evolve into silk processes. We did not enjoy as much the multitude of sales people after the information trying to encourage us to purchase items.

Called in here on a bus tour it’s owned by the government so the quality of the silk is very good. They package everything so that you can get a super king doona that has had the air sucked out of it for travel.

This waterfront area below the most famous section of
the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of
development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel
opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on
than people expected, every year something new and
exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep
calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are
