Enjoy a combination of performing arts and food for a cultural evening out in Chengdu. This 4-hour experience includes a hot pot dinner, a Sichuan specialty where you'll make your own soup by simmering the ingredients of your choice, followed by a showing of the Sichuan opera. Hotel transfers are included to provide you with a convenient night.
Enjoy a Hot Pot Dinner
After hotel pickup in central Chengdu, your evening starts at a hot pot restaurant for dinner. When you arrive, sit down to a table, on the center of which sits a simmering pot of spicy or less-spicy stock. Create your own stew by adding seafood, meat, and veggies with your fellow diners, enjoying a social experience where you can chat with each other while making your meal.
When you're done eating, you'll be transferred to a tea house at Chengdu Culture Park for the Sichuan opera. As the show begins, enjoy a performance filled with dialogue, humor, acrobatics, puppetry, dancing, music, and acting, all of which honor the Sichuan province's history of arts and creativity.
Known for acts such as Changing Faces and Rolling Light, Sichuan opera might seem more like a play than traditional opera, as most acts are based on folk tales, legends, and classic novels. When the show ends, you'll be taken back to your hotel.
