    Lovely visit. Not many exciting rides but nice to walk around. Food is not that good as it is of food court style. Better to dine at Disneytown. Mickey’s Parade was fun. Fireworks display at night was fantastic.

    Yes, there are many strange things for foreigners here - birds, tortoises, plants, antiques (faked?) but the main reason you would want to come here is for the crickets. Cricket culture transcends generations of Chinese history and this is one unique place to experience this Chinese cricket culture. Tip : Before your trip, read up on Chinese cricket culture, watch the videos on YouTube and you will appreciate better why they do what they do in this market. Then squat beside some customers and enjoy the banter between the seller and buyer. Hint : The Chinese buy crickets either for their songs or for fights. I suspect it's the former in the market.

    My mistake : I went there blind - oh, there's this Bird and Flower market - let's go see it. Then started wondering why there were so many cricket sellers and buyers. Why on earth would anyone want to buy crickets? It was only after the visit that I Googled the cricket culture to much regret. If only I had known earlier, my trip would have been all that much more meaningful.

    By the way, in Google Maps, the Bird & Flower Market is reflected as 万商花鸟市场 (Wan Shang Hua Niao Shi Chang ie Wan Shang Bird & Flower Market).

    Chinese acrobats are world-famous, so it was no surprise to see the incredible talent on display at this circus show. Even so, there were times when you just had to gasp in astonishment and admiration at the skill, daring and sheer creative genius.

    It is amazing the positions that are displayed. There was a great variety of acts illustrating flexibility. You are not allowed to take pictures (probably due to flash photography. Would be nice to have videos available for purchase in order to relive the amazing performance.

    Had an amazing 4-day trip in Anhui during Lunar New Year 2022 with M2adventure. Things didn't go as they were expected but our M2 team leaders did a great job managed and proposed new plans.

    Can't wait to join more M2adventure trips after the lockdown!

    We were really in a mood to go for karting. Fortunately, we found Disc Kart on Tripadvisor. The nearest metrostation is Daduhe Road, so you need to walk or take a bike to this place from the metrostation which is approx. 15 minutes.

    Once we arrived we bought our ticket which was 120 RMB, there was no customer service. You need to go downstairs, grab an helmet and just wait when the new session will start. They will not give any instructions at all. The session takes about 8 minutes but feel much longer, it was a nice experience even though there were a lot of turns so max gass is only possible at one point.
