After the show, French freelance photographer Jeremy Walter Grinan said: "The story is easy to understand. After a minute or two, you'll find yourself laughing unconsciously. There are no (digital) special effects and no modern technology, yet it's still very entertaining. Perhaps it's been so enjoyable for over a thousand years."

Moreover, Zhangzhou Ancient City hosts a wide array of intangible cultural heritage, including puppet head carving, woodblock New Year prints and paper-cutting. The old town also contains a wealth of historical and cultural landmarks. Among them are three nationally protected sites: the Grand Hall of Confucius Temple, the Stone Archway of the Ming Dynasty and the Zhangzhou Lin Family Ancestral Hall.
