    What to Expect
    Make your own way to Shufeng Yayun Teahouse, a cultural construction located in the Chengdu Culture Park. Venture within the richly decorated building and take a seat in the position selected. If you’ve opted for VIP seating, sink into a luxurious chair and enjoy a relaxing massage and ear grooming session before the show starts. For more detailed information on each VIP option, please see the Itinerary section below. 

    Hear an expectant hush descend over the crowd as the lights dim and the curtains open to reveal dazzling set design and colorful costumes. Become hypnotized as you watch a magnificent mélange of puppetry, folk music, acrobatics and dancing. See Southwestern China’s rich culture come to life through three distinct acts, which include Spitting Fire, Rolling Light and Changing Faces. Immerse yourself in tales of legend and love and watch puppet shows that depict ancient folk art while enjoying a traditional Sichuan tea service at your table. Upgrade to enjoy specialty snacks that compliment the refreshing beverages. 

    Applaud raucously at the end of the show and venture to the dressing room to transform into a colorful character if you have upgraded to the VIP experience. Make your own way back to your hotel with magical memories after the show concludes.

    The show started with some Chinese opera that may be off-putting for some. But then we segued to other acts - including some comedy that was funny even though I don't speak a word of Chinese. Snacks and tea are included.

    Had the best time. For ¥250 you can dress up in traditional dress and have photos. Such fun. The show had no subtitles but who needs them. It was still well worth it. The mask changes were amazing and the shadow puppets were fabulous.
