Hengdian World Studios

Reviewed By wireless_in_CA - california

There is so much to see during your visit. The signs giving some of the details about the sets were bilingual so that helps. The live shows are all in Mandarin but were a nice example of what goes into a Chinese martial arts show or movie. There are also staff dressed in costumes and you can pose with them.
There is ample parking for all the tourist buses and the place is spread out so it does not feel crowded.

Not a bad place. But was expecting more. Most of the places or 2nd level were close for viewing. Maybe can give this a miss if rushing for time. I would choose other palace if I were to re visit hengdian.

Guangzhou & Hong Kong Street

Reviewed By Kookaaq - Johor Bahru

As the name of this attractions, it is divided into 2 different era with different building architecture. I didn't quite like the Hong Kong Street building as it actually looks fake but the old architecture of Guangzhou street is interesting. The reflections on the lake of the old building is very beautiful. The street is quite quiet as tourist didn't actually go all the way here as most of them are on tour. It was crowded when there are shows going on. Two separate shows at different timing, so check with the ticket counter before you go in.
The ticket price is RMB110 for an adult but children and elders get 30% discount. Applied for foreigner as well.
If you are lucky, you will be able to see the actions of filming of drama/movie within this attractions. For first timer, it was interesting. Be prepared as it involves a lot of walking.
A tuk-tuk ride to this attraction from the city center cost about RMB15-20. Remmeber to bargain with the tuk-tuk driver. If you are planning to visit this attraction, make it together with Palace of Ming and QIng as the are next to each other. Do not worry about food as there are restaurants serving local food outside these attractions and are within walking distance. Do rememebr to bring along bottled water as this attractions require at least 2-3 hours for visiting.

Palace of Ming and Qing Dynasties

Reviewed By Mike G - Vancouver, Canada

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!

Reviewed By AlexandreDuarte5347 - Americana, SP

This American style amusement park is a very good surprise for tourists visiting HENGDIAN. They have many different attractions for all ages, and a huge Ferris wheel.
They also have two shows at the end of the day, one at 7 pm and other at 8 pm. Both of them are worth seeing.
Be prepared for many, many people inside the park...

Luzhai Buildings

Reviewed By cutejelly - Shanghai, China

This is a very quite old architecture complex or manor. It belonged to a big prospery family for a couple of hundreds of years. Now the main part are changed into protection building area and as tourist spot while the other parts still using by local people as normal houses.
You could found most of the antient chinese wood architecture techniques, so beautiful and magnificent woodcraving. The huge lantern (duplicate displaying now) is also the signature thing there.
a guide or some friends know something about the architecture, the tour would be well worth the time. Otherwise you may felt lost there.
