The usual planned "cultural" experience. Good music and costumes and earnest performer. It was crowded with large Westerners and Australians when we attended.

This is really worth visiting along with many of the other historic sites. The music was really interesting, quite different. Take a fan with you as its really hot in there!

I don't understand how this show could possibly have no 1 star ratings. First off, the carpet was still dirty with confetti from some show for before and that doesn't even compare to how horrible the dancers were. They were off-time, didn't synch their moves,...More

You could easily walk straight past and miss it. On a busy street you could just drop in, take a seat and enjoy the show for as long or little as time permits ( although you may find it difficult to follow)

There was a song and dance theater display, but it was boring. I'm not saying this as some knuckle-scraper, it was just a three man set up that wasn't that interesting.

The show was traditional theatre and singing. It was great to see the national costumes, unfortunately their english wasn't very good so not easy to understand what the skit was all about. There was an opportunity to buy trinkets after the show.

Thankfully this theater production only lasted 30 mins as it was very boring and long for the time it took. I thinkthe meaning of the dance was lost on a lot of people. Maybe the tour companies could adjust what they take their customers to.....
