Our seats were booked by the tour company and were on the side/back and a lot of obstructions.And many of the acts faced the center of the seating, not us. What we could see of the acts was very enjoyable.

It was very good. U can see very well from all seats even the cheapest ones. Players were very talented and I had a great time. Visitors shouldn’t miss that show. Tickets were available same day.

First time I ever been to a circus and it was beyond what I expected. We were left gasping and amazed at the sights. Love the Motorbikes and acrobats. Love how there was live music during the entire performance.

Really enjoyed the show and it lasted an hour and a half, just the perfect time. Great skills by the performers and with accompanying music it was very entertaining. Mostly circus acts of different genres but everyone would enjoy it.

Taking METRO in Shanghai is my first choice if there are stations nearby. I agree with Alan H. (If you must take a cab please do make sure that you have lots and lots of time.) Enjoy and have fun!!
