Today we went to the Song Dynasty City in Hangzhou, to watch a show that was supposedly better than a Broadway show. I have to say that it was absolutely amazing. I thought the acrobat show that we saw in Beijing was awesome, and this one blew it out of the water. I think it was titled the "3 Kingdoms in China" or something along those lines, and told a few different stories. The special effects were unreal. We had VIP seats which were in the front row, and they were awesome. At one point, the stages turned into 3 huge waterfalls and a pool. Our tour guide Jo wasn't lying when he said that we would see the prettiest girls in China there either. This show had great acrobatics and told stories of Chinese history, including battles with Mongols and basically the Chinese version of "Romeo and Juliet". The little city that the theatre was in was also awesome. There were many shops and games, as well as a haunted ghost house. I would love to go back here and see another show in the future.
