It is very difficult to reach the film city because there are no sign boards or route maps available. The destination itself is like ruins. There is not much maintenance done. The gate keeper will charge you as per his desire to enter the destination

getting to film city and the close by mystery village was quite a task... google maps shows you the wrong directions...the correct way to get there is to reach zekreet village and then drive into the desert following some boards which leads you all the way up to film city and then to mystery village... there is nothing much once...

its a long way out but its nice to sometimes just go out and see what's lurking in the desert as opposed to the busy city life.

We made this trip last weekend, and I am not sure about the need for 4x4. There are well defined gravel roads that take you right to the site without the need for serious navigation. Having navigated from the old road next to the current Highway and exiting through Zekreet, I would recommend the Zekreet route. Just pass through the... More

There are some places that you must visit before you die. Film city is definitely not one of them. It sounds adventurous and artistic but is just a fort in the desert with nothing to see. Additionally, nothing reminds of a film set.

In the middle of seemingly nowhere the film city suddenly appears. Opening scene of "Transformers" movie was here.

The place good for pictures. It is ok to see. But there is only this place + area around on the desert with interesting natural sculptures that look like big mushrooms :)
