    a very nice experience to visit China's performing arts centre. having a klook ticket was less of a hassle instead of buying and lining up on queue.

In addition, the NCPA has played host to over 70 different productions and hundreds of exhibits since its inauguration in 2007, solidifying its role as one of the most popular places in China.

    We couldn't find the entrance at first, so we end up taking one whole round of the place. The entrace was just outside the station. But the ticket redemption eas super easy. Just saw the booking to them, they'll give the ticket.

    If you enjoy modern architecture, you'll love seeing this building. I didn't get a chance to see any of the performance areas, but even still I found the building very interesting. It's not very expensive and well worth the trip. So different from the nearby ancient Forbidden City or the enormously imposing Tiananmen Square.
  • Eunice Anne 2 Sep 2018
    Good architecture! It wasn't crowded when we came so plus points for that. Beautiful place from the outside, and the inside is fascinating. Worth the money.
  • Juan Francisco 19 Jun 2018
    Practical and easy access. A wonderful place, amazing architecture! It's worth 100%

    Upon exiting the Subway station, you will easily find the ticket redemption booth.

    It is just the entrance ticket to enter the building. There is nobody who explains or guides, not even a pamphlet about the building. The architecture is interesting also from inside, but if time is short, it is not really a must have seen spot inside. Outside it is only a few steps from the entrance of the forbidden city, so should be visited "by the way" (for free).
  • KHOY YAN 26 Dec 2017
    The main highlight, which was the main theatre, was out of bounds. If NCPA are to collect entrance fees, at least open up the main theatre for viewing. Basically nothing else to see. Wasted time and money. Not recommended. I would not even give 1 star.

    The National Grand Theatre has a special appearance and a regular tour, which is worth a visit. However, there were very few tourists on the day, and there seemed to be no need to buy tickets first.
