Where to go, what to do today in Shanghai.
Panda’s Home @ Shanghai Children’s Art Theatre
Children from around Shanghai are invited to the Panda’s Home – where little audiences are going to encounter a panda and then set off on their journey, told through story-telling and pictures of a magical world of growing bamboo forests and the change of seasons. Traditional Chinese firecrackers and drums ignite children’s imagination, while weaving in time-honored Chinese culture.
