I am one of the performers in the Chimelong Circus. I have performed in the show for over 10 years. I have seen its very humble roots and watched it grow into the massive production it is now. In all honesty, it doesn't have the high level of cirque du soleil artistry. It doesn't have the same level of technical... More

We came to watch the acrobats and other attractions. The show was barely half full. Lights and sounds were dazzling and we truly expected much. They didn't disappoint. We had a wonderful time but I felt sad for the animals. They looked thin and some were there just for display. If you're looking for something similar to cirque du soleil,... More

First we thought we would give it a miss thinking it is normal circus with exorbit ticket cost.. But....Chimelong circus Amazing! Some of the acrobatic performances were nail-biting! Throughout the entire show there were plenty of performances, many with a huge variety of animals and birds involved, as well as clowns and various acts that got the audience involved in... More

This is certainly a family event that has something for everyone. Visiting Guangzhou for the first time, I was brought here by local friends and was surprised by the upscale production values and breadth and scope of the entertainment provided. T'is unlike any Ringling Brothers presentation in the states. Acrobatics from high wire, trapeze, long line, diving, biking, free walking... More
