Funded and built by the Shanghai Film Group Corporation, the Shanghai Film Park is pretty much a large playground for Instagrammers in Shanghai. The backlot features architecture inspired by 1930s and 40s Shanghai, in an area that covers around 43 hectares, and features elements such as the classic shikumen buildings, the Zhejiang steel bridge, and a train station.⠀
Many movies have been filmed here, including Kung Fu Hustle and The Mummy 3!⠀

Whether it is a movie or a TV series, reflecting the old Shanghai style of the 1930s, it must not go to the beach. Shanghai Beach has become a cultural symbol of old Shanghai. Today's Shanghai is already a high-rise building, and it is hard to find the appearance of the beach.
However, in the suburbs of Shanghai, you can also find the way to the beach, this is the Shanghai Film and Television Park in Songjiang District. Shanghai Film and Television Park is located in Chedun Town and is also a scenic spot open to the public. Most of the film and television works on the beaches of the era are taken here.
Many of the film and television works taken here are very familiar, such as "New on the Beach", "Dance with the Wolf", "Love Deep Rain" and so on. As long as the crew is shooting, many actors can be seen in the scenic spot. Many of them are workers who work in nearby factories. When they are at rest, they come to play a role and have an addiction.
The most distinctive feature of Shanghai Film and TV Park is Nanjing Road. It is designed and built according to the Nanjing Road in Shanghai. There are quaint trams in the middle of the road. There are signs on both sides of the shops. Pedestrians wear robes on the streets. The rickshaws are constantly coming and going, just like crossing back to 80 years ago.
Visitors can also take a rickshaw ride and take a walk along Nanjing Road to regain the good old days.
In addition to Nanjing Road, Shanghai Che Dun Film and Television Base is another one worth seeing is the Shikumen Lane group. Located in the middle of Shanghai Film and Television Park, it is an antique architectural complex with the background of the old Shanghai culture in the 1930s. The architectural features blend Western culture with traditional Chinese residential culture.
Now, with the disappearance of Shikumen, Shanghainese living in commercial housing will no longer line up for public kitchens and toilets as in the past; it is no longer possible to dry clothes on the balcony as in the past. I chatted with my neighbors. As for Zhang Ailing and Su Qings women who wear tight cheongsam and American stockings and buy imported rouge pollen from the window, they have already turned into an old dream, which is only visible in nostalgic movies.
Shanghai Film and Television Park is far from the suburbs of Shanghai. Looking at the online evaluation, it is said that the place is very poor, there is no need to visit, but we both agree that many movies are here to capture the scene, it still has the value of existence, and we have already seen many high-rise buildings, lighting, the old Shanghai The heart of exploration is better than everything. After entering the park, we will see the ingenious buildings. We will smile and bet.
The film and television park is not big, but every building is the epitome of a certain era in Shanghai. Although it is Sunday, there is not much traffic compared to other tourist attractions. When I met several couples who were making wedding dresses, I followed the photographer to learn the angle of shooting and take pictures.
I have encountered several crews along the way, and there are many group performances in the queue to receive clothes, to see the introduction, many TV dramas are filmed here, such as "Da Wusheng", "Love is Deep Rain", "Why are you silent?" "On the beach" and so on.
The small trains in the film and television park start from the whole point and are free. You can sit in the queue. The trip is short, but it is a brand new experience. In fact, the feeling in the car, not shooting on the road is more beautiful, but curiosity is worth it. The film and television park may have more satisfied with the girl's girl's heart. Many girls in the paradise wearing cheongsam or Tang suits are in groups of three and take pictures of each other.
In fact, many buildings look super beautiful from the lens, but when you look at it, you will find that it may be a single wall, or just a semi-finished product, there is no way to scrutinize it.
Shanghai Film and TV Park will have a free performance in the building of the Shanghai Grand Theatre at 10:30 in the morning and 1:30 in the afternoon. In fact, the performance is very short, and the actors who give us performances seem to be Wudi, but please be sure to Its really wonderful to go see it.
Located in Shanghai's Songjiang District, Shanghai Film Park is an active movie set designed to recreate the classic Art Deco look from 1930s Shanghai. The park features a Nanjing Road set, Shanghai Shikumen houses, and the iconic Waibaidu bridge. There are also Catholic churches, medieval wineries, and European buildings in various styles. Many films such as "Romance in the Rain" and "Lust, Caution" were shot here. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of your favorite stars. Offering tram and rickshaw rides, Shanghai Film Park will make you think you've traveled back in time to a golden era in Shanghai's history.
