Visit to the Hollywood of China
Dec 2019
I was awed by the size of this place! There are many palaces for filming to take place and these palaces are huge! We also managed to see the filming in action. We spend 3 day 2 nights in Hengdian but there was not enough time. We will go back again to visit the other palaces not visited so as to see how certain movies as being filmed.

If you watch period dramas , you will recognized all the filming locations. Definitely worth a visit if you are nearby . Prepare to spend a day here to visit the various palaces and take loads of instagrammable pics. The Guangzhou shanghai street scene , thou small , looks great in photos ! Very good colorful photo opportunities

We travelled from Malaysia to Hangzhou for 7 days trip. We spent 3 days at Hengdian. There are total 10 studio at Hengdian. We went to 3 main attraction of world studio ie. Mingqin palace 明清宫, Qing palace 秦王宫 and Hong Kong/Guangzhou street 香港/广州街. A good experience to see China drama shooting studio. There are some show performed to the tourists. We saw some crew are shooting film too.
Visited on Mac 2019.

Good for Cdrama buffs or if you live in China.

Went to Hengdian from Shanghai via train to Yiwu, which is 1.5hrs away. After that, the taxi takes another hour to reach Hengdian. The rail was comfortable with the mid-tier ticket. We stayed at a hotel near the Qin palace so it was just a short walk there, around the various attractions there is a free shuttle bus but there is a n additional line over what was on their website so it was abit confusing. Fortunately, the bus driver always hollered if he sees anyone at the bus-stop looking lost (like us).

Qin palace is nice but I find the real forbidden palace much better than the copy in Hengdian. It is huge and hot when we go, so we opt for a bicycle/tricycle right away upon arrival at the Forbidden palace. The horse show stunts is a must see at the Forbidden palace, its really good. I didnt like the bao yu shan hong (storm show) at the amusement park in the evening. Lots of snazzy light with a real simulated flood but without much storyline. The afternoon show at Forbidden palace about the history of modern china is real good too, much like a stage play. Qingming shanghe tu (qing picture place) was a disappointment and I rather visit a real water village like Zhou Zhuang or Zhu Jia Jiao near Shanghai.

We didnt visit the HK retro place so cant comment. The Hengdian town is cute with young aspiring performers singing and doing skateboard stunts on their own accord. But that is about it.

We spent 2 nights there and I think it is quite sufficient unless you want to cover all the sets. Food options are limited, mostly local fare with KFC and starbucks at specific places. I think it is worth a go for a short stay if you are already living in China and provided you do understand some mandarin. It is really a very local hangout.

Must Know - Chinese Hollywood- weekend getaway location
Jun 2019 • Friends
The whole place in nutshell: stage for many Chinese movies, great place to selfies and scenery, not so crowded.

Longer version - keep reading.

Many movie scenery that are still today use to shoot new movies. Some of the location like Ming and Ging dynasty villages were very great to walk around and take photos in nice background.

One can rent a costume of Han, Tang or Ging dynasty (men and women) and walk in the set posing like in ancient China. Had my doubts at first but it ended up being fun.

They have 7 different sets and fun-park with machines and dolphin show.

A must for C-drama buffs
Oct 2018 • Couples
The visit to Heng Dian Studios was an all girls trip for my 80 year old mum and me.
We were so glad that we got China Highlights Tour company to plan the trip for us.
They did a really efficient job from the airport pickup at Shanghai to the high speed train to Yiwu. From there we were met by our very own guide, the wonderful Tina.
More on Tina and our driver in another review.
Heng Dian is massive.
We only covered part of it in the course of one afternoon and the next morning.
Be enthralled by the imposing entrance and first sight of the Chin (Jin) palace.
You can play dress up and be an emperor or empress and get your photos taken.
The Ming and Ching palace is also worth a visit and you can see a show that chronicles this period in history.
If you're into Chinese dramas, you'll get a thrill recognising some of the places here such as the non descript title of the auxillary corridor where many battles have been staged or where the hero meets the heroine. Sigh....
Anyway, if you do have the time, make room for this place in your itinerary.
It's a two hour drive from Hangzhou.

Experience China's Hollywood in Hengdian City
Jul 2018 • Couples
For 178 RMB, this is a reasonable cost to experience where the many of the famous Chinese Hollywood Movies are made. There are props, buildings like the Forbidden City, play stages, and staged acts re-enactments throughout the scheduled day. Definitely a place to visit if you are into the Chinese films. You can easily spend the whole day here of course. There are costume fittings you can take part in for a fee but it makes a great souvenir. Even see backstage makeup rooms too. Food, drinks and souvenirs are available everywhere. Of course its more expensive but we have budgeted for it and wanted to be lighter in our travels rather than be bogged down with water and snacks of our own.
As it does get hot here under the sun, go seek shelter at the plays scheduled for air conditioned environment, covered walkways and pathways, eating areas, exhibition areas. If you need to be outside for photos, every so often, they will have cooling mists of water come out to cool you off so take advantage of those too.

Very Busy Day
Mar 2017 • Couples
This has a copy of the Forbidden Palace which is used in many movies & shows (Monkey, Curse of the Golden Flower, etc) with some props from the movies still on site.

The costumes are great, the food is good - as always, a bit higher than street prices, easy access to, in and around. Expect to spend the full day there, but you still may not see everything.

Parking was easy, with plenty of spaces.
