Song Dynasty Town
Located adjacent to the West Lake, the Song Dynasty Town is a recreation of a Song Town. The Song Dynasty ruled China from 1127 to 1279, moving their capital to Hangzhou in 1229. The Song Dynasty was a period of prosperity in China. Marco Polo is believed to have visited China during this time and was amazed to see huge cities of over a million people, vast amounts of commerce and busy river and canal traffic. The town is arranged in an original Song style, with streets lined with colorful shops, stores, restaurants. The town can be divided into six parts, Reappearance of the Painting "Riverside Scene on Qingming Festival", Jiulong Square, Song Dynasty Town Square, Fairy Hills with Wonderful Towers, Song Palaces and the Romance of the Song Dynasty( still under construction).
Shows and plays featuring Song culture are performed here daily.
