Shanghai Circus World

Looking at ShanghaiCircus World from the outside, you wouldn’t necessarily think that it contained a circus. It looks more like a giant golf ball than a traditional circus, but appearances can be deceiving. Covering a massive 2,2500 square kilometers, it has long held the accolade of China's number one circus.

So what’s the story behind this strange, glittering dome of fun? The complex is situated on Gonghe Xin Lu Road, and integrates traditional circus acts, acrobatics, magic, dancing and music into popular extravaganza performances.

Shanghai Circus World is internationally-renowned. The world famous Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe performs here regularly, attracting audiences from across the globe. Since it first opened to public in 1999, Shanghai Circus World has been the setting for more than 800 performances. It has been the location for many important art and culture events like the closing ceremony of the 1999 Shanghai Tourism Festival.
