They are good choices for those with limited travel time. The ticket price also looks very attractive when there is a discount.

However, both Kunming and Xi'an are very popular tourist cities, so the air ticket may not have any discount during peak seasons like July and August, when high speed trains are better choices. Normal speed trains with long travel time but cheap ticket fare are more recommended to budget travelers.

Thank you for your inquiry.

To reach the theater, you can take airport shuttle bus to Xi'an Hotel, it takes around 1 hour on the way and the bus runs around every 30min. The dinner time starts at 6pm, so the time is a little bit limited for the dumpling banquet, but the time for show is still fine.
