There were dance, acrobatic, real horses, very good lightings, fireworks, water etc. in my opinion, its one of the best musical/dance I have watched! Didi ride from Yan an road cost me 40rmb. It was a... More

The theme park part was kind of weird but lots of fun. We spent about 5 hours there before the big show and were never bored. There are at least three haunted house type attractions which we loved even if some were a bit tacky. The gambling den experience (near the main entrance) is really worth lining up for. We... More

Went on a wet a Sunday (Christmas!), but the family and I still had a great time! The Romance of the Song Dynasty was entertaining and gave a good, albeit brief account of how Hangzhou fitted into the Chinese history. The performers were also top notch. The street fare was surprisingly very good. A little higher priced, but very high... More

The park is overly commercialised and doesn't really know what it is, at once a replica of a historical village with themed shops all in historical dress, the same minute more of a kids and adolescence theme park with fun rides and ghost tours. A fun day for kids but adults would be left wanting more from the experience. The... More

Song Cheng is supposed to be a representation of what Hangzhou, once the capitol of China in the Song Dynasty, looked like back then. Unfortunately, apart from the musical performace, I found Song Cheng to be gimmicky and a complete tourist trap with nothing very interesting to do. When we went, it was full of tourists, mostly Chinese, and it... More

A friend recommended us to go to this show. When arrived at the place (taxi about 20 mins from the lake), we were a little confused. Didn't expect it to be so big! There are many different shows and before the shows begin you can walk around and see and especially buy tourist items on the Song Dynasty. Recommend to... More

First of all don't miss their show at any cost. This show is amazing and this beats Siam Niramit in Thailand. Park its self is good and Song dynasty is very well demonstrated. This is must visit place.

One of them was gambling in ancient times, you can use the ancient coins to gamble with the staff who act as a maker. The show "Songcheng... More

Second visit to this theme park on Sunday (6th Nov) - took my time to see the activities and wander through the narrow lanes to check out the food and souvenir stalls. I tried some BBQ chicken sticks at one stall - not bad at all. While my friends watched some singing and dancing near the volcano I had a... More
