The park is nice, a lot of things to do. The best part was the Romance of the Song Dynasty show - very interesting spectacle telling you the story of the city. A lot of beautiful dances and costumes. The only thing I didn't like was that it is allowed to take video during the show and everyone is holding... More

We went there because it is supposed to be a top attraction. We were really disappointed. The theme park itself has some interesting booth, but nothing too special. You can dress up in Song Dynasty costume for free. The ‘show’ was the real disappointment. It may be one of the biggest, but it certainly not one of the best. For... More

Possibly the best attraction in Hangzhou. Lots of old history to learn, wearing Song Dynasty's cloths were interesting to take photos and the musical show was one of the best I have seen. I was short of time , would like to go back there again some day to explore Hangzhou more

Lots of stalls and different activities to see. The musical show was very colourful and beautiful. Although all in chinese so too hard to understand. Very crowded

PLEASE DO NOT MISS THIS FANTASTIC SHOW. The Romantic Show os Songcheng lasts for about 1 hour and was performed in 4 parts by great dancers, singers and warriors , fantastic sceneries and one of the best stagings I have ever seen. It is a huge theater and it was difficult to get even a single ticket for that night... More

After reading the reviews of fellow travelers, I decided to bring my family to Song Cheng to only watch the show. I picked the 8:30pm show, so most of the crowds had left by this time and just a few shops remained opened. So we only had a look at the shops on our way to the theater which in... More

Went there mainly to catch the Song Cheng live show, was told it is ranked TOP 3 in the world. Found the show entertaining but certainly no where at TOP 3 world level. Theatre is too big so only if you are seated near the front middle, the performance is too far away. Visted the haunted house but was not... More

The theme park itself is quite strange and mostly filled with the same shops that can be found all over Hangzhou. The actual "attractions" (haunted house, strange street etc.) are pretty average but the show itself really is spectacular and worth seeing. A lot of the audience can be a bit inconsiderate at times, though. They didn't seem to realise... More

Went to Songcheng expecting to find a very commercialised and over the top theme park, filled with the usual tacky tropes, and I was not disappointed. At the entrance, you were given the option to dress up (free of charge) in clothing from the Song Dynasty. I was tempted to throw one on myself but decided against it since it... More
