One hour show telling the story of a young Kung Fu boy. The choreography and skill is very good and definitely worth seeing. Very difficult to get a taxi outside after the performance, maybe make prior transport arrangements. Two shows a night starting at 5.15pm.

I was disappointed in the actual amount of time spent at both the wall and the Ming Tombs. We spent maybe 30 minutes at the Ming Tombs and 1 hour at the Great Wall. The guide was nice enough but hardly shared any information about...More
