Best choice to learn about chinese music and dancing is a visit at a chinese opera house. Actors in beautiful traditional dresses are telling little stories by dancing in groups. The show has no story line, it´s just a sequence of single dances. Before the...More

Choose carefully! There are a least four Tang Dynasty show in Xi'an and around. This one is definitely not the best: The packed seating around tables don't facilitate the view for ladies and children. The loud hall is super packed with groups of tourists in...More

We visited this traditional opera house not knowing what to expect. Forget the traditional western type opera, this Chinese opera is nothing like I've heard or seen before. Fortunately there is a screen explaining what we were watching and hearing on the stage but even...More

The start with the dumplings was amazing. They were all very good and the artistry and work that goes into them was beautiful. Then the show was great. The costumes and music were wonderful. Would recommend to all who go to Xi'an, China
