Xiangshan Film and Television City was recently included in a Zhejiang provincial pilot program to build future scenic areas. 

A total of 10 scenic areas in the province made the list. Support will be offered to the 10 candidates to improve business patterns, increase cultural and tourism integration, develop smart tourism, reform institutions, and more, so as to transform them into models for the development of high-quality tourism in the province.

Situated in Xiangshan county, Ningbo, Xiangshan Film and Television City is a national 4A scenic spot, the second highest in China's grading system for scenic spots. In 2006, it was ranked as one of "China's Top 10 Film and TV Bases". 

The studio, spanning an area of 1,176 mu (118.4 Hectares), provides scenes for film and TV featuring different historical time periods, dating as far back as the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). 

There are many daily performances held for visitors, including puppet shows, shadow plays and scene plays.

In recent years, the studio has been actively seeking to improve the experience for visitors by promoting the application of cutting-edge technologies like 5G and virtual reality.

It also plans to bring in a digital virtual film studio from Hollywood and put it to use by the end of this year.
