The programs of the tour performances have been carefully designed covering the national dance, folk music ensemble, folk songs, calligraphy and other traditional Chinese cultural elements which fully presented the long history, extensive and profound Chinese culture. The performances also paid attention to the interaction with the audiences, including teaching them the whirling of a handkerchief, the art of paper-cutting and calligraphy and so on. Some small gifts with rich Chinese cultural characteristics such as the couplets, paper-cuts, and Chinese knots were also prepared for them. Enthralled by the performance, many audiences lingered in the performing hall, competing to take photos and exchange with the performers. What they said was nothing but“So good! It is amazing!, Wonderful, I hope to take a look at China one day!”
