“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

We hadn't planned to see this show but as it was a wet day it seemed like a good option. And we are so glad we did! 70 mins of superb acrobatic kung fu - set to a charming story. Very high standard. We bought the cheapest tickets which were perfectly good. Be warned for phones ringing in the audience - the person behind us spent 5 minutes on the phone, oblivious to her surroundings and no-one seemed to mind!

“MUST SEE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is a great show with a good story line. The actors are very talented and captivating to watch.

The story is told in English and Mandarin, which is very helpful. The story follows the life of a boy in a Monastery, who learns the discipline of Kung Fu.

You can buy tickets for any seat and have a good view of the stage, there are no bad seats here.
Tickets were reasonably priced and worth every penny.

“Kung fu and ballets love child”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

You don't need to understand Chinese or anything about Chinese history to love this show. Definitely has a wow factor in terms of presentation and should appeal to all ages.

If you want to see real martial arts...well then this is the wrong place. This is more of like a swan lake version of martial arts.

It is about a monks spiritual path to being enlightened.

Definitely worth seeing if you've never seen it...but not one of those shows where you can sit through it twice and still be amazed.

Summary-
Squatter bathrooms
Food and shops are expensive refrain from buying.
You can't take pictures....but you can sneak just don't get caught.
