Yaoli is a popular tourism site for its mountain scenery, well preserved old buildings, and historic production of both Chinese porcelain and its main material, petuntse or "porcelain stone". Ceramic production seems to have begun as early as the Tang dynasty, but declined by around 1600 under the Ming dynasty, leaving several abandoned dragon kilns that have been preserved, and a town centre that was largely unchanged until recent years. Both mining of porcelain stone and the production of porcelain continue on a smaller scale, using rather traditional methods.
