Our Gate 1 tour took us to the glass factory to watch a demo from a master glassblower. He made a vase and a horse while another man narrated the steps and told us about the history of glassblowing. It was fascinating to watch the glassblower command the glass to his liking. Afterwards, we were led to the gallery and shown some various pieces. There were quite a few showrooms to walk through; however, I got stuck in the jewelry area and we only had about 30 minutes to shop. I did find some beautiful bracelets and necklaces; however, I was surprised at the lack of earrings, and the pair I did buy did not match the style of the other jewelry at all. Prices were fair, I think; at least I felt like they were not made in China. I wished I had more time to perhaps pick out a vase, too. One thing our tour guide forgot to tell us, unfortunately, was that if you pay with cash, you will get a significant discount. I could have saved 20% on my jewelry.
