We visited the village at night, so it was almost closing time, but we were impressed with the lighting and the romantic atmosphere. Highly recommended to visit.

Fantastic gardens and water features with scale miniature models of famous Chinese historical landmarks. There are also life sized traditional homes from different parts of China, a traditional Chinese village, and a stage with a live traditional Chinese play. Nice restaurant is also on site with Chinese food. Good for a half a day visit. Definitely worth a visit if... More

Its a lot of little models of different places around China, which is interesting to see if you've not gone around China. I prefer this to windows of the world which is the same but landmarks around the world, as you get to see places around China. Best to try and go on a weekday if you can as its... More

The entrance fees to China Folk Culture Village is RMB180. We went in Dec, happened to be a cold, windy and rainy day. It is not crowded. The landscape was commendable, with the beautiful flowers and miniature replicas of the interesting and historical places in China, You will see many traditional houses of the different ethnic groups of the people...

Very much alike with Window of the World, China Folk Culture Village has a huge collection of Chinese landmarks in smaller size, with its distinctive architecture and plantation arrangement. Performance show is also interesting, but for me it was more like "formality thing to do" while visiting China Folk Culture Village. Tour bus is available, but it only allow you... More

interesting model villages to show the diversity of traditional architecture in the villages around China, set in acres of gardens that are pleasant to walk around and spend a few hours relaxing. I was surprised how interesting it actually was, although the usual souvenir shops add an extra element of tackiness to the experience. The only show we watched was... More

Quite crowded and a bit disappointing particularly if you have visited the actual sites around China depicted here in miniature. Pretty unremarkable overall.

This place was the highlight of my visit to Shenzhen. Some people might say it's too commercial replica of the villages in interior China but it is great concept of many things under one roof as it would take huge efforts to traverse China to see the authentic villages. The horse show was exciting and showcased the good horsemanships of... More
