    TVB City 電視廣播城 (in Sai Kung District, Hong Kong). It's a specialized closed studio (meaning, generally not open to the public) facility that has replica structures from imperial China.

    Here's a short clip (Cantonese only) of Miss International 2008 contestants visiting: [video=youtube;939DnkCfbZs]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=939DnkCfbZs"[/video]

    Most of the TVB period dramas are done there, though there are some where they actually go on location (mostly PRC) but those are usually very expensive productions.

    if uve been watching ancient TVB stuff, u should know by now the "streets," "goon fu," "stores," "restaurants," "man fa lau"/"yee hong yuen" etc are the same old ones XD, those houses, new or old ones, same thing over and over again-----cus they used the same studio all the time :p outdoor ones, like others said, gardens, just have to remove the modern things with technology

    Yup, there was actually an episode or something showing how they create (and remove) the modern decoration with technology.

    It depends I guess, but to cut down costs (budget), it would be.
