Being on tour in China for 15 days this was the last event that we did to round out our trip. The show was amazing from start to finish. The only thing different I would have changed was our seats. We sat towards the right of the stage getting only a side view of the show. Those who sat directly... More

We saw a totally amazing 1 hr. 45 minute acrobatic show that featured death-defying feats of skill, strength, and showmanship. There is a 10-minute intermission. The acrobatic show borrows much from Cirque du Soleil in terms of presentation and music--this is not a criticism--this is a compliment. I am still shaking my head at the last act in which 8...

Lot of people get confused of what to do in Shanghai. Well one thing to not miss is this show. It is often sold out so pre-booking recommended. There are no words to measure the thrill In this show. See it to believe it

An amazing and brilliant show of athletics, strength and talent. Not since I was a child have I held my breath out of concern (fear?) for the performers. But I must be honest...I worry for their future health, especially their back, knees, joints. 🤕

Combine "Cirque du Soleil" and "Chinese Acrobatics" = A1 Show, HOWEVER this Show goes Way Beyond that Level.Have NEVER SEEN a more brilliant "show" Anywhere in the World - It Left Me "SPEECHLESS".The performance is "Outstanding" and "Death Defying", YES death defying. A MUST,MUST,MUST SEE SHOW for all ages.

Only had one night in Shanghai, but my goodness, could not have thought of a better way to spend it. It was truly amazing, the motorbikes at the end were jawdropping, if you are there,do it!

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood 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.
