This worthwhile attraction is part of Overseas Chinese Village (better known as OCT) and showcases the myriad minority ethnic cultures that make this vast country much less homogenous than imagined. It also serves as a great introduction to the history and traditions of China.

Negative: - These 2 parks are combined, so ticket prices include both (though there's no real separation in the building layout). It was pricey - almost $30 per ticket. - My suggestion - do NOT go when it is hot (we had whiny kids, thirsty kids, hot kids, tired kids...). Due to the heat, we didn't get through 1/2 of... More

After 10years I came back to this park. Authentic as it is, lots of miniature of the famous places all over china, Forbidden City, Shi Shan Ling, Great wall, and my most favourite part is the chinese folk culture show which shows every day at 7.30pm

This is a 'theme park' that is designed to celebrate the many minorities in china. To sum up there is the Han and the rest are minorities. Language, customs, dress, music it's all there. Do not treat as authentic more as illustration/information gathering but worthwhile.

this place is great fun for a family day out. We had a lot of fun visiting all the attractions of china in one place and in miniature version. The food is really good here and very reasonably priced. i highly recommend this to anyone that has a family and is looking for a good day out in Shenzhen

The China Cultural village is China in a park. It contains all of the highlights of China in a "mini-town" kind of way. The park is massive and quite exhausting.

Could have spent many hours watching the shows and displays and going from place to place but it was raining too much for me! I'd recommend... More

At first,I thought there's nothing to see and visit in this place but when we get to Folk Culture Village it was really a nice place,you can feel the tradition and the culture of Chinese people, they also have a cultural show. And they also a lot of jewelry shops like pearl, gold etc.

Half of the attraction has cultural village settings of the various minority groups and the other half has miniatures of different parts of China.

Excellent exhibits that bring you through the history of this country since its founding. A lot of cool stuff to do here and see here. I'd consider it "must see" at least once.
