  • Hardly to maintain a place like this without much visitors which is sadly. The tour guide and also people who contribute for this culture needs serious commitment and passion that i admire. Usually during hungry ghost festival you can see the puppet show and opera around the town if you lucky. At least from this place you will know a bit about the history and how are they going now. They can show you how to play. With a small amount of fee you can stroll around and take pictures as much as you want, few properties you can use also. And of course you can buy interesting souvenirs. There you can see handwriting script, music instruments, costumes that used for opera and also the box that they used to carry around the properties.
  • Amazing! Well worth a visit! Really informative and friendly staff. Parsley recommends.
