    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Tang Dynasty Show, 75 North Chang'an Road, Xi'an 710065 China

    The tour guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby at around 6:00 pm based on the show schedule, then accompany you to enjoy a wonderful evening of the Dumpling Banquet and the Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show by public transportation (bus, taxi or Metro based on the hotel location). The Dumpling Banquet dinner starts at around 6:30 pm and the Music and Dance Show begins at 7:30 pm and ends at 8:10 pm. At the end of the show, the tour guide will escort you back to the hotel by public transportation.

    The Chinese dumpling has a long history and is an essential part of celebratory meals such as those prepared for the Chinese lunar Spring Festival. Xian, an ancient city that was the nation's capital for no less than eleven dynasties spanning more than a thousand years, is regarded as the home of the great dumpling tradition. No visit to the city is complete unless you have a dumpling dinner.

    The Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show has been on of the most popular attractions since its debut in 1983. The show reproduces the magnificent scenes of the prosperous Tang Dynasty, delighting the audience with fascinating ancient imperial court music and dance. The Tang Dynasty Show, a wonderful performance of the ancient music and dance, is a must when you visit Xian.

    Dumpling dinner before show was plentiful but mass produced, so was ordinary, three people from our group of forty got sick. Before show included the selling of unrelated souvenirs at the table. Show was reasonably well produced with lighting, dancing and bit of history told.

    Beautiful choreography, costumes and the musicians playing live. Good dancers. The dumpling dinner before the show is nice, but a bit too much food.
