Formerly, most Chinese people's impression of Hefei was that of a small, poor city in southeast China. But nowadays, through economic development, it has become a vibrant city where, after a day's work, people enjoy a rich and colorful nightlife. Generally speaking, tradition and modern lie side by side and leisure and romance are two words that can best summarize the night life. Wandering along the streets at night or sitting in the moonlight sipping tea or coffee. How romantic!
At night, traditional 'culture vultures' can enjoy a theatre performance of Lu Opera performed by Lu Opera Troupe of Hefei City. This excellent show is not to be missed. The well-known repertoire of Lu Opera plays are Li Qingzhao, Baishezhuan, Shuangsidai, Jieluoyi, etc. If you are in a more aesthetic mood, People's Film & Video Recreational Center located in No.16 Quxi Road is a good choice.
