During a state visit with Emmanuel Macron, president of Puy du Fou, Nicolas de Villiers, will sign a strategic contract for the future of Puy du Fou in China.

With an opening date of 2022, a site at Qinhuangdao, facing the Great Wall, will be transformed with a spectacular night show as well as a themed hotel, restaurant and period village.

Currently Puy du Fou has a team of 35 working in Hangzhou to develop a concept inspired by Chinese culture.

The China project is not the end of Puy du Fou’s global ambitions. Aside from France and Spain, Puy du Fou says that it “aims to give birth, by 2030, 2 other Puy du Fou in the world”.

In an earlier interview with Blooloop, de Villiers explains the attraction of China: “International expansion means we can grow without becoming too fat.
