Want to see grand Chinese acrobat shows? Shanghai’s the place to go. With over 5 theaters showing the daily tourist trap performances, you’re bound to walk into one at some point. It took me three visits to Shanghai to try it out, and I made my decision as to which place to go based on location.

 

As I was staying in Pacific Hotel on the very central 108 West Nanjing road, the closest performance was with the Shanghai Centre Theatre (上海商城剧场) on 1376 West Nanjing road (南京西路1376号), a well oiled tourist trap machine that hosts a very convincing show of highly trained acrobats.

 

So, on with the show…
