The Legend of Kung Fu Show

Day show: 5:15pm, Evening show 7:30pm.
44 Xingfu Street, Dongcheng, Beijing

The Basics

Two performances are staged daily, and while the 80-minute production contains no dialogue, a screen above the stage tells the story with English subtitles to help foreign visitors follow along. The show is popular with both international and domestic tourists and is often included in package tours that also feature a Peking duck dinner or an afternoon visit to Pearl Market (Hongqiao Market) or the Temple of Heaven.

My 2.5-year old son enjoyed it very much! The Peking Duck dinner wasn't as ceremonious as I expected. I thought they'd show how they prepare it but instead our tour guide showed how they eat it at the table. Our tour guide Lucy was lovely! She was very sweet. While my husband and I was shopping at the Pearl Market, she offered to walk around with my son and played with him while we get our shopping done. Please ask for Lucy!
