I really liked show of Song dynasty, great performance that is definitely highlight of Song town. But the rest of the Songcheng park is nothing special. Shops there are selling overpriced usual stuff which can be bought anywhere else. Moreover, Song town seems to me very much artificial after visiting real historical sights, streets and towns in China. This attraction... More

We visited in November 2015. I had visited in 2013 as well, as a guest in a business trip. Highlight of the trip is the musical performance celebrating the Song Dynasty. (I'm a trained theater amateur, with experience in acting and technical work, lighting design in particular.) The Song Dynasty show is a spectacular performance. Acting, dance, and technical work...

Our family's visit to Songcheng, Hangzhou was an unexpected treat! The attractions's claim "Give me a day and I'd give you one thousand years" (loosely translated) sounded very grandiose and unrealistic at first... but once we were inside the park, it felt as iff we travelled in time. The Romance of Song Dynasty Show was a multi-sensory extravaganza. Even my... More

All the time-travel dramas like 步步惊心, 神话 and 宫锁珠帘 piqued my interest in China's history... (Well, to be honest, I was bought over by the gorgeous costumes) The Song Dynasty Theme park is the largest theme park based on the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279) and it is a tribute to the golden age, where China was at the...

Hangzhou Songcheng, Hangzhou Song (dynasty) City, is a theme park. Actually, it is a replica of a town from the Song period with restaurants, shops, and lots of attractions in the streets. People dressed in the style of Song walk around, perform, and carry tourists around in a sedan chair. This, to my opinion, is too touristy, but the crowds... More

Go to see the show, which is grand and impressive, and even had our 2 year old fascinated for an hour. Buy tickets online if possible to reserve front-row seats as much of the action can only clearly be seen close up. The rest of the park is fun ONLY if you see it through the eyes of young children...

The show in the songcheng is impressive. A lot of show outside as well, but it's all in Chinese. Some other attraction in the park is quite well, ancient Chinese theme. However, I don't understand why everywhere use Chinese except the logo is in English........ ruin the whole theme park

First show start on 2pm. It's advice to reach not too early or too late(2 hours before should be good). That will be alot of local people sell you some pre-bought ticket, it's better to buy directly from counter for good seat.

Nice place, but it is all man made. But the play is worth is price considering the number of dancers etc. And the waterfall was breath taking!

Lighting is good, the beginning of the show is boring, their costumes are shining, but if you have seen show in Shenzhen, this one is just Ok. So crowded there, and you will get a mask for your ticket. Your ticket has seat number.
