It was sooooooo far away for us to go from Pudong but we tried and succeeded. 1.5 hours on metro and another half hour bus ride. We also found out that we had to stop at Zuibaichi metro station Line 9 ( NOT at Songjiang Xincheng - because the bus there is no more working the route). So we stopped at Zuibaichi metro station and took Bus No. 6. Stopped at Beisong Highway at Chedunzhen. The film park is another 5 min walk to the front on your right.
Entrance fee was 80 Yuan. Huge park. Highlight for us was we managed to catch a movie shoot in progress - a fighting scene.
Park is filled with famous buildings and areas around Shanghai. Nanjing Road in the 1930s was spectacular. Good park to walk around and take lots of photos. Cafes are around for drinks n food.
It was not crowded when we were there last weekend so we liked it.

This place is not really too far from Shanghai hongqiao area where we stayed at. we took the taxi from our hotel and is around 40mins with moderate traffic and costs 120yuan

We reached around 1230pm, bought the tickets priced at 80yuan per person and had a lovely time scrolling in the park. You do get discounts for elderly or students.

It was not as big as I had expected it from reading it on its website. We saw a few production teams filming throughout the 3 hours we are there. Most of the settings seems to be set in the 1930s-40s.

Went to watch the 20mins action stunt show - scheduled daily at 1030am and 130pm and it was just nice for the 2nd show for us. The theatre that houses the show however needed even some basic maintenance as the seats were full of dusts and the stage looked like it has been the way it was since the park was firstly built which is already kinda worn down. It will also b good if the naration of the stunt show can have english.

There is also a big garage that houses all the antique cars including ambulance, army trucks, etc. my partner was particularly fascinated by this section of our tour (no surprise there i guess!)

Lots of picture taking opportunities and visitors both local and foreign can be seen taking pictures from the diff film sets.

To return to Hongqiao, there isnt any local taxis but there are a number of private taxis waiting for customers at the entrance. We thought they will b charging ridiculously higher rate but when we asked, they are charging 130yuan to get back to our hotel - so that is the similar rate as when we were using the metered taxis! So no worries, ask and if you dont like just dont take it.

I know there are also shuttle busses that commutes too fr downtown for those who are looking for cheaper travel expenses. Look it up here fr others' review or just google it - the info is pretty easy to find.

Overall it is a nice half day spent here - something diff than the usual attraction places in Shanghai city

If you ever have any doubts on how a movie is produced and how the wuxia swordsman fly and fight on rooftops head off to Shanghai film park at 4915Beisong gong road,Chedun town,Songjiang district.
Here one can have first hand experience to watch how the movies shooting scenes are like .Besides many couples tying the knots like their wedding photos here.Scenes of old Shanghai in the 1930's and many parts evokes memories of the Shanghai Tang days.
Nanjing road,props and cars,phone booths ,Waibaidu bridge and alleys of Shikumen make wonderful studios for photo taking.Also there are wax figures of famous actors and actresses.
Daily martial arts shows at the Lotte tea house at 1030 and 2pm where the guests can join in the fun too.
Easy to reach by taking Metro line 9 to Shanghai xincheng and then take a bus or cab to Shanghai film park at Chedun town which is about 20kms awayEntrance fees is 50yuan,
The Park is open from 0830 to 1630 daily.

The impression I got before I reach this place was it must again be filled with bunch of local Chinese tourist. But to my amazement, it's rather the opposite of it. Not crowded at all. Mostly are individuals/couple travelers. The info I found about this place at the official website are actually very very outdated. The website itself mentioned about the bus shuttle from the Shanghai Stadium. It's not available already. Even the public transport info mentioned in the website is also no longer valid. I am posting the way I got there here. Take the subway Line 1 to the last station which is the Xinzhuang Station (莘庄站). Exit through the South Exit and board the Shin-Jin Line Bus (莘金专线) to Chedun Stop (车墩站). The Shanghai Film Park is just opposite the bus stop. On the way back, board the same bus at the bus stop at the opposite direction. The Shanghai Film Park is quite interesting looking at the old Shanghai architecture. I bumped into 3 filming crews where partial of the park was cordoned off for the filming. But I was lucky that during their lunch break, the part was opened up and everyone can just walk about freely for photography. The park is quite big so, get ready with walking for a good few hours. But of course, you can sit down anytime for a break......it just look like an old city after all. One bad thing I observed was the park was not properly maintained. I came a across a site where there's fake blood splash on the floor inside a mock building. It seems that nobody bothers to clean it up after filming previously. So, what more can I say about the local Chinese behavior? But it's a nice experience to visit the place.

First of all, you will need good information before you can find it: many busses are running there, but without number and only with Chinese caracters. Ask in your hotel to write the name on a paper to give it to a taxidriver.

These film studios are really special: you think you see a house, but it's only the outside wall: nothing is inside. Old trams are running, but when you look very good... everything is an illusion. The houses are smaller (80 %) upstairs and also the trams are. But it's worth of a visit: at the entrance you will find an hangar. Inside are many old cars, busses, riksjas... everything what you can immagine that have wheels and can be used in movies.

If you have time and interested to see how an old Chinese city could look: it's the place to be. But it's an attraction and nothing is true.

Visited here just after Spring Festival with my wife and her parents. Spent the whole day at the film park which is modelled on "lao Shanghai". They have trams, old cars, horse and trap and impressive replicas of Nanjing Road, the former Bund war memorial etc.

The day we visited they had a kung-fu performance from some of the extras in Chinese movies and a Taiwan food festival.

Best to get here via Lianhua Lu metro station, and then a bus to the film park.

We took subway then transferred a bus to come here. Bus journey took around 1 hour. From the Chedun bus station crossed the main road, walk straight around 30 min finally arrived the flim park. Entrance ticket cost Rmb$80/adult and Rmb$40/child.
What a special photo spot, an oldies of Shanghai style building and decoration, remind me for many familiar scenes of China drama series. We spent 3 hours here, really enjoyed the trip. Just a few tourists on that day because it was raining all day.

Wanna have an insight of how the Old Shanghai looked like? This is the right place to be. A very authentic reconstruction of Shanghai in the first decades of 20th century, with a charming and mysterious vibe. There's a great chance to find a movie crew shooting on sight and who knows, maybe it will be the day to meet your favourite Chinese actor/actress.

First of all, this place is far from everywhere because it is situated on the outskirts of Shanghai and it takes at least 40 mins to travel to Songjiang station from the center and another 15-20 mins from the metro station to the place by cab. The entrance fee is RMB 80.
Sometimes (most of the time) there are film shootings during the day and part of the park is blocked for 1hour or longer. It is a big place so you can wander around waiting for them to finish.
The place is fun and oddly beautiful with all the decorations scattered around and costumed people resting near the scenes. I enjoyed the Downtwon Shanghai part and Art Deco buildings as well as the small lake and Peace plaza. It's just a nice attraction to visit that can be classified as 'off the beaten path'.

Shanghai Film Park is an ideal place for filming and sightseeing. This is an ideal place for shooting, sightseeing and culture communication such as "1930's Nanjing Road","Shanghai traditional houses", "Downtown Shanghai in old times", "European style architecture", "Suzhou Creek", "Church", "Peace Plaza", "Old Shanghai bridge", "Lake and mountain area", costume and prop ware-house, film library, screening rooms.

Traffic directions:
Metro Line 1: Transfer at Xinzhuang Station, Take the Xin-Song Line bus or Hu-Jin Line Bus in the Jinshan direction, and get off at the Chedun stop.
