About operator:

Bringing life to culture, and culture to life! For more than three years our focus has been to provide the most authentic in cultural experiences while staying away from the common activities and attractions. We believe that culture is best absorbed through experience: those who visit with us become monks for a week, craft items of tradition with their own hands, and immerse themselves in environments rich with Chinese cultural heritage. Every month the team delivers unique opportunities - doorways to discover the crafts that artisans of this ancient land have been perfecting for thousands of years; windows to the spirit they embody. In addition to monthly events TA also organizes custom private experiences for visitors of all types, from the solo traveller to families and business partners.
