After pick up from your hotel, you’ll be taken to a local hot pot restaurant to enjoy tasty Sichuanese fare in the company of new friends. Hot pot is just another well-known delectable Sichuan cuisine. At the center of your table is a simmering metal pot of stock (spicy or non-spicy), waiting for you to throw in ingredients of your liking: various meats, vegetables, seafood and more. The hot pot dinner is a social experience – chat with your neighbors while you create your mouthwatering pot of soup!
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Shu Feng Ya Yun Sichuan Opera
It’s like watching magic happen right before your eyes! This is what you’ll be thinking while watching the Sichuan Opera, a marvelous display of Sichuan culture and art. On your evening out in Chengdu, you’ll receive a delightful overview of Sichuan customs, combining a delicious Sichuan meal with an awe-inspiring display of visual art. Sit back and enjoy a performance packed with wit, humor, lively dialogue, amazing acrobatics, dancing, acting, puppetry and music, all of which celebrate Sichuan’s creative history in the performing and fine arts. Most acts are derived from Chinese classical novels, legends and folk tales. It features dazzling sets and costumes and is known for two distinct acts: Changing Faces and Rolling Light. Rolling Light involves a performer acting out a variety of routines like jumping over a bench or dancing with a fan, all the while balancing a bowl lit with fire on his head! Changing Faces, perhaps the most popular act, involves speedy makeup changes right on stage while the actor performs other exciting feats. The most complicated routine requires the performer to inconspicuously switch between different damask masks as the drama develops. Relax as you are taken back to your hotel after the 90-minute show.

Great night out
, Dec 2019
Travelling solo can have its downsides especially when it comes to hot pot and the amount of food so this is why I booked this tour, I didn’t want to miss out on the unmissable Chengdu experience. My guide Hayley promptly met me at my hotel and took me straight to a hot pot restaurant. She explained every detail and asked what I liked to eat. She then helped me navigate the correct way to eat hot pot. After a relaxing dinner we walked the short distance to the opera theatre where Hayley made sure I was comfortable before the show. The show is interesting but the best part is seeing the face mask dance where there masks change. After the show Hayley took me back to my hotel doorstep. It was a great night and I really enjoyed talking to a local person.
Fabulous evening in Chengdu!

There were 5 of us who participated in this group. The dinner was fantastic - our guide, Green, did a wonderful job explaining and showing us how to cook hot pot. Delicious! It was then a very short walk to the Opera, which was absolutely wonderful. The performers were talented and the final performance (fact-changing) was just amazing. Definitely recommend as a great way to spend an evening in Chengdu!
Great Dinner and Show ! A must !!

Andy picked us up at our hotel and we drove to the hot pot restaurant. We had lots of fun, it was in a beautiful position overlooking the river. Andy helped us choose the different food we were putting in the hot pot and helped us know when they were cooked. After this we went on to the Sichuan culture show. Andy had explained about the show beforehand so we understood what we happening. The show was very colourful and entertaining, a perfect night in Chengdu!
