Day 1

Puppetry and puppet shows are famous all around the world. Each and every country have their  unique puppet shows- be it the  water puppet shows that are very famous in Hanoi, Vietnam or the 6-string ones of Rajasthan India. Similarly, Shadow Puppetry  is something that we get to see in Beijing!

This is a must visit! And why I say this it is because it doesn't only include the puppet show but it provides us a complete holistic experience. The trip here includes- Tour of the Shadow Puppet Museum+ First hand experience of making one by our own hands +The Puppet Show+ Getting a chance to become a puppeteer!

Once the show is over we get to  try our hands on shadow puppeting!  Every bit of this trip was worth it. Shadow Puppet show should be right at the  top of  every tourist's Beijing city tour guide!
