Great experience
Mar 2019 • Family
It was very enjoyable to visit on spring season. The weather was cool and I was able to see cherry blossom. This is a wonderful gift for me as a flower lover.
A very big palace studio almost the same size with the original in Beijing. We saw several shooting scene ongoing, very interesting experience. There are some show at certain time. We spent almost whole day here from morning until 5pm.
Visited on Mac 2019.

It's so large and wonderful
This is construction so perfect
And have a lot of films produced from here.

Just another replica..
May 2017 • Family
This is a replica of Imperial palace in Beijing. So if you have seen the one in Beijing, don't bother visiting this place.

There are two or three shows during the day which are good but nothing extra ordinary. Also the shows are in Chinese so foreigners will find them difficult to comprehend.

Everything is overpriced including the entry tickets and food/drinks/games inside. Not much choice for food as well. Surprisingly, there are no fixed rates for bikes on rent, games for kids etc. If you bargain, you can get a good deal.

Overall, if you haven't visited this place, you are not missing out on anything. I would any day recommend the original structure in Beijing over this Movie Set.

One big walled guangchang (square)
Mar 2016 • Family
A walled square, with a big room on top of the stairs where u can take pictures for an extra 50 to 100 rmb. Most parts are closed and under construction. But didn't see a palace anywhere. Waste of time.

Surreal being so close to history!
Jun 2015 • Solo
When I went in June/July 2015, their was some construction being done. I think that the Kangxi tombs were still being constructed in preparation for the public. Other than that, I went to all of the usuals. Qianlong - Xiangfei - Cixi etc. I thought it was absolutely crazy to be so close to historical figures. You can see the tombs from about a metre back, and the intricate architecture within the chambers was amazing.

Amazing place! You'd think you were at the real place!

We spent most part of a day here and I was totally blown away! I have seen many movie sets but this is obviously the biggest I have ever seen. The detail is amazing, and if you didn't know, you could be standing in the real Imperial Palace and surrounds.

'Chinawood' it certainly is!

There are multiple areas to the place so taking a free map when you get through the gates is a necessity, and it is also in English as well which of course is a huge help if you don't speak or read Chinese!

We wandered through pretty much the whole place and were surprised around pretty much every corner. There are sets which duplicate the most famous palaces of course, but there are also other areas off to the sides including the Imperial Garden and many others. Actually we found some that weren't even marked on the map, which were sets of old streets, a prison, other gardens and a few more.

All in all a very good place to visit, but I was wishing that there were tours available in English, but I think I was the only Caucasian in the whole place on the day we went! We visited on a Monday so before about 2pm it was really quiet with very few people around which was also a bonus so photos weren't totally overrun with tourists, and it was almost like we had some areas totally to ourselves.

There are peddle powered 'bikes' that take up to 6 people if you don;t want to walk, but we felt it was easier to walk it all instead of locking the bike up and having to get back to it, but it is an option.

There are also gift shops, of course, but to be honest they didn't seem to be too expensive, and there are shows on at various times, but the one that we saw was more like showing off how special effects are accomplished, and of course all in Chinese, so although it was quite good, was a bit unnecessary from my point of view, but maybe worth seeing if you are into that.

We didn't find anywhere to eat which we were hoping for apart from hot dogs, so maybe take something to eat or eat before visiting.

From another point of view, and one I couldn't help thinking was quite ironic, is that as this area of China is 'famous' as a 'copy city', only in China could you see a copy of what is probably the country's most famous of ancient buildings! Maybe I'm just a bit too cynical..!

Overall though if you are close by, I would highly recommend it and at 110RMB (about $18) after 10am it is not too expensive for the sights that you get to see, and who knows, your friends will more than likely believe you went to Beijing and saw the 'real' palace!
