From start to finish this show seamlessly moves from one unbelievable performance to another. The performers, the live music and singing, the lighting were so well choreographed, in a globe theatre with no bad seats. The final act which culminates in seven motorcycle riders integrated at speed inside a metal globe, left me breathless. Well worth the visit.

The acrobatic show is stunning and breathtaking. If you travel to Shanghai, you should not miss this performance. The school for the best Chinese artists is located in Shanghai. You may just watch very young artists being juniors or seniors of the schools, but you may not believe it is real, as good as it is.

Acrobatics at it's best. If you like that kind of special sport it's a must if you have more then 3 days staying in Shanghai!

This show is a "not to miss" when visiting Shanghai. These acrobats perform stunts that you don't think can possibly ever be done by man! The motorbikes at the end will make you disbelieve that humans can actually be this talented.

I've seen Circus style acts in 4 Continents and without a doubt this is the best I have ever seen. To say that every act was first class is rare but in this case it is correct. Make the effort and be thrilled and enthralled.

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.

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.
