I have seen many different Cultural Shows in my many visits to China, but I rate Dynamic Yunnan as up there with the best of them.I attended as a member of a group of 19 people and we all agreed that it was a wonderful show. The varied songs and dances kept you enthralled. The story behind the Show's producer... More

A very classy show. For me it was a last minute decision, straight from the airport. Therefore only the most expensive seats were available and, they were a bit pricey. Parts of the show are unbelievably beautiful, but everything is authentic and colorful. I can recommend it to everyone.

The performance is excellent and you can see the dancers are very passionate. The only dislike is that photography is not allowed and the personnel uses red lasers to point at people trying to take photographs. This is very distracting and spoil the performance somewhat.

This was such a special, unique and stunning show, I've never see anything like it! Thhis performance focused on about 5 of Yunnan's ethnic minority groups, the Bai, Tibetain and others. The dancers, costumes, choreography, lighting, music was all spectacular. But the most fantastic thing was the authenticity of the performances. All of the performances were a celebration of the...

I would rate this top among the many performances I have seen in China. This is the main attraction in Kunming to me. What's most disturbing was, some Chinese tourists were noisy while the show was going on. I guess sitting closer to the stage would have avoided such nuisance! We were sitting at row 15. There are 18 rows... More

Not sure if we'd have managed to negotiate the task of getting tickets without the help of a Chinese friend.But we got them and sat in our seats at the start time. Only it wasn't the actual time the show started. People shifted seats for about half an hour before the show opened and for some minutes after. Despite photography... More

This show was a real highlight of our trip. As promised, the show "fuses the beauty of Yunnan's ethnic minority dances and songs with the power of modern stage exhibition". The story telling, music, dancing and costumes all combine to provide great entertainment. Don't miss this if you are in Kunming. We had dinner before the show at the adjacent... More

I've been to 3 other culture performance shows in China, and this was probably the best. It's definitely not interesting the entire time. Sometimes you will be impressed by the dancing, and other times you will be wondering why you are still sitting there watching. I wouldn't pay for the most expensive seats in the house.

I thought this was a great show. Unlike many other shows I have seen it China it did not rely on electronic help but the skill of the dancers. It was quite 'ethnic' but I enjoyed it a lot.
