Songcheng is a manmade touring site, which is built to imitate the ancient buildings and the life styles of Song dynasty. It is the most popular theme park in China, aiming to reflect the classical culture in Song dynasty. The ticket of Songcheng is about 300RMB, which includes entrance fee and a show ticket. The show is called Songcheng Eternal... More

Well, I didn't really expect this at first. We all just went by a taxi from my hostel and it took about RMB 45. We paid RMB 280 for the entrance fee and it included the shows inside. It was like we were brought back to ancient time in China. We were walking down the alleys with traditional gambling house... More

Wonder how does the Song Dynasty looks like? This is a replica of the Song era. Depicting the lifestyle and culture of those era. I would strongly recommend you to visit this place a night. More scenic. Beautiful night lightings plus amazing cultural performances. P/s: visited November 2012

Mostly here for the show. The show itself was good, but the audience, which consists of mainly local tour groups, was highly irritating. People kept snapping pictures with flash lights throughout the show, standing up and forcing others to do the same to see the performance, and one guy even talked loudly on the phone during much of the show....

there's not much to see about Songcheng, except for the show, probably one of the best show in China. The artistic show has dancing, recreated fighting scene in the old day, light, laser, firework, cannon (yes, the big gun), water flood, including rain (in the whole theater :). We came for the show, the ticket is costly, but it was... More

The place is great. Has many beautiful buildings modeled from Song Dynasty to take a picture. The show is great. There is the narration in Korean and English before the show will start. I sit on the bottom row and the people in front of me keep bobbling head to block me. There are some staffs to tell those people... More

It's supposed to be some kind of theme park, with Song Dynasty being the theme. Rather primitive and not well managed. But it attracts a lot of local package tour tourists. It has a show on Hangzhou. Local opinions suggest that the show is far better than Xihu Impression and thus it attract many. The show is OK but not... More
