International Grand Bazaar Banquet Performance

Fodor's choice

This entertaining song-and-dance performance is preceded by a ho-hum buffet that unsuccessfully tries to capture the delights of Uyghur cuisine. Never mind the food, as this is your best chance to see Uyghur, Uzbek, Kazakh, Tajik, Tartar, and even Irish dancing all in one eye-popping evening. Make reservations through your hotel or at the banquet hall.

Tang Dynasty

In a city where the list of nightlife options isn't terribly long, the song and dance performance at Tang Dynasty makes for a fun if slightly cheesy evening. Dinner starts at 7 pm, shows begin at 8:30 pm, and for the meal you have a choice between the dumpling banquet (Y400) and the Tang Dynasty Dinner (Y500). You may be able to get a better deal through travel agencies that often have offices in hotel lobbies.
