This was a must for me visiting Taipei. I really enjoyed the interaction with the customers before the show. You can see some ofthe cast applying their makeup. Another is playing music. And photo opportunity for free. They also had some souvenir available. The overall show was fantastic. The show had everything from comedy to martial arts display, dancing. I... More

The content of the shows changes - during our visit it was "The Joys of Peking Opera" which gave us a good introduction (watered down a little bit to accommodate Western tastes) of Chinese opera, although it did include that high pitched squeaky singing!. We bought the tickets in the afternoon and arrived a little early at 8.10pm to choose... More

As a new expat to TaiPei I was surprised that I seemed to be the only expat who was aware of it's existence! Nonetheless my roommate and I went to the Saturday night performance mostly unsure of what to expect. It was wildly entertaining! As expats living in Asia we've seen our fair share of Chinese lion dances. This one... More

Oftentimes you've seen one of these shows, then you've seen them all, but this show still had some surprises. There were many amazing acrobatic feats, and the Beijing opera after intermission was not at all earsplitting, but instead very enjoyable and easy to follow. The story was fun, the costumes were well done, and it was a great time.

This year Some of the performers were in the foyer putting on their makeup make for the visitors. (They were not doing this in 2013 when we were there.). We were able... More

We finally went to Taipei Eye and it was wonderful! The tickets can be purchased ahead of time in their English website, which is very helpful. This little auditorium is small enough that everyone will get a good seat, but big enough that there's room for many people. As you enter, you are welcomed by many ushers, who give you... More
