The 1st thing you see when you get off the cruise ship is the performing arts center. It was closed but we still walked around and enjoyed the beauty of the building. That day there was also a marathon being run in the city

They pretty much put any kind of show or small concert in this building. Just recently the Shaolin monks came to visit and that was spectacular!

The visually stunning Kilden Performing Arts Centre is the city’s theatre and concert hall built in 2012. To get the best sunlight for photographs you should visit a few hours before the sun goes down.
