Wuqiao is truly a hidden gem. It is famous throughout China as the home of acrobatics yet very few foreigners outside of the profession have even heard of it let alone been there. Once a place where masters of illusion and feats of great skill gathered to practice their art in secret, Wuqiao is now home to a government-run Acrobatics School that has removed some of the mystique but none of the awe.

Visitors are not permitted into the school but are very welcome at Wuqiao Acrobatics World, a theme park where shows are the order of the day. As everything is included in the ticket price, visitors may wander freely and enjoy all of the performances as they wish. There is also a small museum detailing the history of acrobatics in China and of the travels of acrobats from Wuqiao.

This site makes a great day trip for those who enjoy this form of entertainment and want more than the one hour show in Beijing or Shanghai.
