The city’s is renowned for its paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and crafts such as silk embroidery, carpentry and jade carving. There has been a renaissance over the last five years supported by the demand for well-appointed offices, sophisticated restaurants and decorations for the homes of arriving expat families and a rising middle class who have flocked to the new housing estates and have walls to decorate and floor space to cover.
