“Romance of the Song Dynasty”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

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 apparently enjoy it.
The highlight here is the Romance of the Song Dynasty show, a grand, one hour show that depicts scenes from the time of the Song dynasty. Performance, decor, costumes, music, singing, and dance, all are top of the line. Very much recommended!.

“Grand Show of Romance of Legend”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

The place is rather hot and deserted during day time in summer but turn alive in the evening, with employees of the park dressed with clothings of Song Dynasty. Don't miss the show of "Romance of Legend", a world class entertainment program showcasing the past history through beautiful dances of Song Dynasty with attractive dancers in vibrant costumes and dresses !

“Village is ok, the show is spectacular”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

First of all, you can buy tickets to the show from the gate only 1 hour 20 minutes in advance. We were there in good time and had to wait for a while. Still there was enough time to walk around the theme park. There was a lot going on and you could spend there few hours.

Our goal was to see the show. And what a show it was! I have never seen anything similar. Big dancer groups, beautiful costumes, amazing props, running water etc.

I definitely recommend this show if you are visiting Hangzhou only for a short time. You will not get bored.

“Part of the tour”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

Looks like a movie set. all man-made but quite fun to just walk around and pretend to be part of a period movie. Many parts still under construction but was ok.
