Guangzhou’s Cirque du China

I am a long time fan of the Cirque du Soleil.  I collected every CD of their performances since the 90s. Years passed and this Canadian world class act finally invaded Las Vegas, came to Southeast Asia, and even performed in Manila. I never got to see them yet.

However, in 2008, I had a wonderful opportunity of watching Chime-long International Circus in Guangzhou, China. It was breathtaking.  While Cirque du Soleil  concentrated on human performances, China’s pride has man and beast performing harmoniously together (think White Tiger with performers), and it always brings a full house everyday in Chime-long Resort.  As the world’s largest permanent circus, founded in 2000, with more than 8000 seats in the circus stadium, the circus performers are a merry mix of colorful races plus a horde of talented animals.  The spectacle equals one fantastic show combining the best international circus acts.
