I visited Shanghai back in 2015. I was making up my bed and thought Damn I still love this comforter after 5 years. It was expensive. I still have never seen or felt anything like it anywhere state side. If you are short on $$. Buy those silk pillow cases. That was the "biggest bang for your buck". You will never need a scarf on your head at night. Easy to travel with too. If you buy the sheets, duvet, comforter, and put the PJs on. Becareful when getting into your bed. You will slide right out of your bed....

It was amazing to see how they stretch the silk to make doonas and other things . You learn how they make some silk worms spin there cacoon together as twins to achieve larger items

IT is basically a big shop with a great variety od silk goods. I bought silk duvet which I could not find elsewhere. Very comfortable. I also bought several silk scarfs, and found at the airport their shop i.e asilk, with exactly the same scarfs but half the price that I paid in the 'museum' (1250 yuan at the museum, THE SAME at the airport - 650).

This is an interesting place to see where silk comes from, how it is made and to learn the basics about what goes into finished products. You can see them make a comforter during your tour. As far as buying that is the next part of the process. Depending on what you are looking for and how much time and money you want to spend this can be a good place to shop or a good place to gather information to take to the place where you intend to make serious purchases. The education part is very good. The rest...that is up to you.

I read the reviews on this website and as the reviews were positive, I concluded this was a reliable shop to buy 100% quality silk pyjamas. I bought 6 pairs of what I thought was their best quality pjs. The brand was ASILK. They refused to negotiate on the price, claiming everything was full price. At the Pudong airport, I found the same items for half the price. So, please don’t be a fool like me, which is why I am writing this review.

I realize this is part of the tour to get you to shop, but that is part of the fun. Totally loved learning how silk is processed, and the only stop on our tour that I wished we'd had more time. The best pillow I've ever had, and so in love with my duvet cover. Wish I could shop from home. A real delight, and would consider a return trip.

You took a tour to China? Then I'm sure you made all the obligatory stops -- the Great Wall, the Terra Cotta Warriors, the Jiangnan Silk Museum...........maybe not even in that order.

If you are a serious silk shopper, you will be happy you found this specialty shop with its extensive inventory. If you were expecting an actual museum, keep searching.

There is a small workshop demonstrating how silk is made which is worth a visit. The silk duvets and duvet covers are popular with visitors, but if you just want a silk scarf or purse there are plenty to choose from. Do your homework regarding what to look for in a quality silk item.

This is yet another place where the authorities make tour groups go whether you want to or not. Although the process is of interest, they are more interested in selling their products.
