We were with a group of friends and I don't think anyone even blinked during this show. It was really one of the most amazing shows we had ever seen. The show went from one amazing act to another and when it ended I could not believe the time had passed so quickly. Definitely worthwhile!!

The acrobatic displays show the best of subtle bodies and precision. Beautiful costumes. The finale of motorbikes in the netted circle was scary, H&S wouldn't allow it in the UK! Don't know how many accidents they must have, but it's very tense!

This was a truly amazing show, my eyes never left the stage. The skill of the performers is awesome and the finale with the motorbikes whizzing around in a circular cage is mind boggling. Well worth the money.

I am experiencing something of this kind for the first time. So was surprised. AMazing performance by the artists. Sometimes I was even worried for them, because of the danger in their performance. I remember I was not looking to stage soemtimes, :). But soon realized this is their daily job.

Went with tour group to this theatre, and was amazed by the acts. Had a good view of the performance, and some amazing feats of balance. Best of all was the motorcycle display as a finale with bikes being added to a small some up to 8 in total. Fantastic!

Incredible acts of all sorts. Unbelievable 8 motorcycles in Death Sphere. Now I know where Cirque Du Soleil recruits their acts!

These athletes go one step further and the performance is magically entertaining too. This is a must see of China. Well worth the time.

This show was outstanding. 8 motorcycles all speeding in one dome was insane! All the other acts were also exceptional and were equally heart stopping stuff.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
