Peking Duck and Wonderful Night Show

My friends and I we four people have a China vacation during this holiday. Of course the capital city – Beijing is our first tourist destination. Time flies, this is the last night before living Beijing. So we joined a group of Beijing Night Tour: Peking Duck Dinner and Acrobatics Show to have a nice end to our Beijing tours.

Quanjude Roast Duck

Peking Duck originated in Beijing and it is famous throughout the world and duck pancakes at home are one of my favorite foods! The English speaking tour guide picked us up at 5:00 pm and drove us to one of the branches of famous Beijing Roast Duck Restaurants – Quanjude Roast Duck Restaurant. We ordered one duck with accompaniments and some duck spring rolls. About 20 minutes later a chef arrived at our table and proceeded to chop a whole cooked duck in half. The chef is experienced and within a few minutes, the whole duck became chips. We were left with 2 plates of duck, one containing the meat, one containing half of the ducks head, and the other holding suspect looking meat, which I can only assume were parts of the poor duck's innards with plum sauce and cucumber! Then we were given pancakes and onions. The duck had a very strange taste in my opinion, it didn't come close to our Western duck pancakes and the meat was very fatty! However, my other three friends like it very much. All in all, the dinner gave us a very deep impression.

After dinner we went to enjoy the excellent Acrobatics Show – one of the traditional Chinese treasures. Since we know nothing about Chinese acrobatics, before the show, our tour guide told us a lot about the history and its development. Chinese acrobatics has a long history and it is the traditional performing arts. In the development stage of primitive art, together with music and dance, Chinese acrobatics has become the main dominant culture at that time. The show began at 8:00 pm. It was wonderful! I can't imagine how they could do these difficult and dangerous actions. I show my great honor to all the acrobatics actors!

We had a wonderful Night Tour in Beijing and thank you very much to our experienced tour guide. Tomorrow we will travel to Shanghai, the modern city in China and I hope we will have a nice trip there just like Beijing!
