Located in the town of Hengdian in Jinhua, 160 kilometers from Hangzhou, Hengdian World Studios was originally built during the mid-1990s with an investment of 3 billion yuan ($452 million).
Dubbed "China’s Hollywood", Hengdian is the largest film studio in Asia, and the largest film and television series theme park in China.
There are 13 film and teleplay shooting bases and two ultra-large modern studios with regional design characteristics of both the South and the North, which have attracted tens of thousands of directors and actors to work there.
So far, more than 1,200 films and television plays have been born there. The place has gone beyond just being a shooting base for a large number of Chinese films and TV dramas, but also a competitive shooting base for foreign blockbusters and TV dramas.
