China western film studio is stituded in the West of China .It is one of my favorite scenic spots.This is not only a tourist resort, but also the shooting place of many famous movies such as Dahua Journey to the West which famous in the world.The most important thing is that the food here is very rich where You deserve to visit.It is characterized by simple, wild and folk style. In Zhenbeibao West Cinema, scenes and props of some films have been preserved and restored for tourists to watch.

Nice place for photo taking . Very chinese so dun expect sets for western movies . While the place looks ancient , they are of course man-made . Great I’d you have some costumes. The chariot and horse lineup are great for photo..

After breakfast , our tour bus first destination was Zhenbeipu West Studio, populary known as “The Hollywood in the East”. This is the China Western Film Studios!!! , one of the most famous film studio in western China.

Its a lot to walk but we were advised by our Tour Leader to move in an anti-clockwise direction as Zhenbeipu Studio was once two ancient castle relics built during the Ming & Qing Dynasties to defend against the invasions of northern tribes. In between the two ancient castle relics , is Yinchuan Old Street.

There are various stores with local souvenirs, preserved car workshop, toilet facilities, old buildings with exquisite arts of carving from brick & stones and exhibition halls.

Walking , browsing through the great many Chinese traditional materials culture , one could learn the life style and history of Yinchuan.

From camel riding, dining, sightseeing to shopping, this place on the whole is not only a film studio which produced many outstanding movies & television series but an entertaining tourist site & photography haven too!!!!

We had an AMAZING experience with this tour in Yinchuan! It was kind of hard for us to get around Yinchuan ourselves because almost no one spoke English so we decided to go to this guy who spoke English and it was more than what we expected!

So they took us to sites such as Shuidonggou, Helan Mountain, Zhenbeibao TV & Movie city, Shapotou desert etc., I highly recommend you guys go to at least two of these sites. They might be far from each other but there is a lot of nature and culture to see in these places.

Other than that, we did cool local things such as: Hike Helan Mountain and camp there; BBQ and dumpling-making in a traditional Chinese yard; Exploring local night markets where all the local people go. I think they organize other things such as biking the city and villages, and learn how to draw Chinese calligraphy etc. but we didn’t have time to do those.

Seriously go to these guys, They offer a low price too!

This outdoor film studio is place for many popular chinese movies and therefore a must for fans. You can walk through many scenes of different movies and will recognize this if you have seen them. Quite interesting and worth a stop if you are in the neighbourhood. I haven't seen so many chinese movies but the experience was still ok. You can buy food and drinks several places and also souvenirs. Not much activity/entertainment for the visitors. You may experience preparation work for a new movie or some filming.

This place is quite an interesting place to visit, apparently one of the most famous attraction in Yinchuan. You can spend pretty much the whole day here. Many old Chinese movies were filmed here, and you get to try the props and take photos with them. The studio has three villages, so expect a lot of walking, there are also many vendors selling traditional souvenirs. Bring water and snacks as it gets pretty warm during midday. Don't eat the food at the restaurant, as they seemed very doggy. You can get a tour guide there however their English wasn't that great.

Vast area with three sections. This is a walking tour so wear comfortable walking shoes and be in good health.
Although very basic in actual offering the individual sets were well thought out with a lot of detail. Sets had plaques detailing the films in which they were featured and different areas were well sign posted. If you are interested in Western Chinese cinema then this tour is ideal. If not, it is an eye opening introduction to an oriental film industry. No guides or interactive characters in costumes. No life or engagement from robot workers.

Minimum time 60 minutes.

Clean (and rated!) lavatory facilities with toilet paper in hand wash area.
