This was a fantastic experience for my children and I. The Opera was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed dressing up in the traditional costumes with make up and all. The photos their professional photographer took turned out great. Worth every penny. A must see/do in Chengdu. (And they take credit cards)

If you go yo Guilin it means you should take Li river Cruise, they pick you up from you hotel and the others from other hotels. If you do t like to drive around to collect people you can pay and ask for private transfer.the cruise is big enough with prober deck to enjoy a scene. Clean toilets on a cruise, guide, and food. We liked it and we are happy for that.at the mean time, you see other people you can socialize with them.

The show is at times breathtaking in the physical dynamism of the performers. It is a great spectacle - superb colourful sets and lighting. The storyline is a bit limited, and after a while the Kung fu action gets a bit repetitive.

It was easy to buy tickets on the spot with cash. Locals use other Chinese apps for tickets and payment solution. I don’t blame the gate keeper for not knowing what trip advisor is. There is one ticket to enter the park, another to visit the temple. Make sure you got both for complete experience. It’s a lot larger than the temple of Earth. This is the one to visit if you can not go to bothZ

I didn't expect this show to be as high quality as it was. It was absolutely excellent and I will for sure go back again. I kept looking over at my teenage sons who were smiling and fully engaged in the performance. If you are going to Beijing and want a cultural experience I HIGHLY recommend this show.
