Get off at the Overseas China Town (OCT) stop on the metro and take a right out of the station and make your way through the parklands area and over the pedestrian bridge.

This park has reconstructed habitat of many Chinese ethnic minorities, with people in traditional clothing and sometimes dance and music show. It is really good in general to discover the variety of ethnicities in China and very good for children.

Spending time to browse through all the miniatures and models built in the Splendid China Folk Village covering about 30 hectares of land required more than 6 hours. However, there are cars and trains to transport tourists around the Village, to visit the Great Wall of China, Forbidden City, Double Dragon Water Fountain,Temple of heaven, Three Gorges Dam, Potala Palace,...

There are 3 live shows. * Horse-back battle: Not the most impressive. But worth a watch * The impression China : Extremely impressive. Blows your mind right off.... More

Before u could enter, a good ride around an elevated train would show the entire place and its suburb for 40 yuan and 30 min. Require some good walking inside to see... More
