By conversing with people from the past and experiencing diverse customs, the audiences will feel what the ancient people felt. In a wave of nostalgia, they will be filled with reverence for the traditions of this festival," Feng Zheng, the chief director of the show said.

The show was shot in Zhengzhou of Henan province, Zhaoqing of Guangdong province, Wuxi of Jiangsu province and Xiangshan of Zhejiang province, creating a unique visual feast by combining on-site shooting with visual effect technology.
