    Sung Dynasty Village is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Hong Kong. It was officially opened in 1979. It depicts ancient Chinese culture and is modelled after Bian Jing of Sung Dynasty during the period between 960 AD and 1280 AD.

    Interesting attractions at Sung Dynasty Village are its market places and its architecture. Don't miss the showtime at regular intervals and the wax museum at Sung Dynasty Village. For those who visit the village with children, an amusement park is located next to the Sung Dynasty Village.

    Located next to the Sung Dynasty Village, this small but informative wax museum is wortht the separate admission.

    It depicts famous Emperors, their wise or wicked ministers and their concubines of the different Chinese dynasties wearing the fashion of that period.

    There are interesting written signs that tell short description of each Emperor and dynasty. Great photo opportunity - HK Madame Tussaud.

    This village is recreated to as a cultural living centre of 13th century Sung in China.

    There is a typical Sung temple, tea shop, mansion and shops showing arts and crafts of the Sung dynasty period as well as performances like acrobatics, martial arts, dancing and a wedding ceremony to keep all entertained.

    The Sung Dynasty was around from around 976 AD through 1279 AD and the village is a recreation of a typical town during this age. You'll find people in period costumes going about their business as if it actually were a thousand years ago.
