Immerse yourself in China's past times at Hengdian World Studios

Hengdian World Studios (横店影视城) in China is the largest film studio in the world, majority of the Chinese TV series and films that feature ancient scenes are made here - Known as the "Chinawood"

I took my parents to Hengdian this weekend. It is made up by 6 major studio sets and numerous small sites - it's enormous inside!

Transportation:

We took train from Nanjing to Yiwu, then bus at the Yiwu station directly to Hengdian


Site Highlights:

We covered the following in 2 days - mind that each site requires a separate ticket (range from 40-270rmb), or you can buy All Passes (430-610rmb).
