This was not on our tour, but arranged by our guide. It included a dumpling dinner, with many dumplings shaped like the foods they contained, e.g. a duck's neck and bill on the duck dumping. There was also a picture card showing and explaining each...More

Dinner and one hour performance The dinner was 5 course and was tasteful and filling. The performance was with music, dancing, amazing costumes and scenry's. Just the experience was worth the time. Might want to buy tickets n advance.

Lovely place. Had a nice dumpling dinner before hand. I really enjoyed this show, and could not take my eyes away from it. Well worth seeing.

The show was very nice and you'll have more dumpling varieties than you knew existed. It is a bit of a tourist stop but worthwhile overall.

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
