Add To Plan

Watch a mesmerizing cultural performance known as the Magic Min Nan, a beautiful expression of ancient traditions that continue to flourish in south China.

Depart from the pier and commence a 45-minute drive through the prosperous island city of Xiamen, which is also known as Amoy, primarily by Chinese in the southern Fujian Province that speak the ancient dialect of Min Nan. Full of colonial charm, Xiamen still retains much of its allure and character from the past, as you will discover at the Cultural Art Center.

Upon arriving at the center, you will be treated to an enlightening cultural show entitled Magic Min Nan. Sit back and enjoy, as this large-scale theatrical performance is filled with action that reflects the folkloric traditions of south China.

The elaborate sets change frequently to accommodate entertaining puppet shows, spirited dancers in traditional costumes, and an amusing satire on the classic Chinese tea ceremony. Another act in the performance involves the martial art of Shaolin Kung Fu, a version of which was born in the Fujian Province.

During much of the performance, dramatic music plays in the background and 3D lasers illuminate the stage in bright, ever-moving colors. It is a truly mesmerizing experience that is not only memorable but also educational, as you will gain great insight into the traditions of the Fujian province. After the curtain goes down on the Magic Min Nan show, you will rejoin your coach and transfer back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes minimal walking and is mostly seated in nature. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Casual clothing and comfortable shoes are recommended.
