Xi’an Welcomes Tourists with State-guest-level Welcome Ceremony

From now on, tourists to Xi’an can appreciate a tourist cultural performance called Dreaming Chang’an – Welcome Ceremony of Tang Style on the theme of the etiquette culture of the Tang Dynasty from the South Gate of the ancient Xi’an City Wall. 

It is an etiquette performance of the highest standard, which reproduces the grand welcome ceremony during the Tang Dynasty. It is the only state-guest-level welcome ceremony in China. The ceremony adopts the form of ongoing experience performance. It has welcomed distinguished guests including former U.S. President Clinton, Prime Minister of Singapore Goh Chok Tong and Prime Minister of India Narenda Modi, enjoying a good reputation both home and abroad.

The 2017 edition of Dreaming Chang’an – Welcome Ceremony of Tang Style still consists of two parts, namely, the ongoing experience performance “huge offer of grand welcome ceremony” on the cultural and etiquette square of the South Gate of the ancient Xi’an City Wall and the artistic performance of “chasing dreams along the Silk Road” inside the barbican entrance to the city.

The performance shall last from April 1st to the end of October. On the evenings of Thursday to Sunday, the performance will be given once (starting at 20:00 every night), while it will be given twice every night during the International Labor Day and the golden week of the National Day.
