I last visited this attraction some 12 years ago. It was average then and to be frank it really hasn't changed very much. But if you are in shenzhen with time to kill then you could drop worse then this. The price in my opinion is rather high

I went here with my best buddies and we completely enjoyed the trip. It was an eye opener to see many miniature structures and understand the culture. Best part was the dance show .We watched 2 of them and it was great fun ! Especially one of the shows where we were taken inside a local theatre space to get... More

We went during the day. It was really hot and humid so that affected enjoyment... well for me anyway. It would have been much better with more shows. There are some nice historical pieces and homes.

The Folk Culture Village is now part of the Cultural China Park. It is between Window of the World and Cultural China. It is an interesting walk through if you plan on visiting the other park. Peacocks can be seen walking around the village. It is a secondary attraction that could be added to a visit to the big parks.

Is really a copy of different parts of China. If you do not have the chance to see other parts of China or at least to visit the Villages from China is a nice place to visit. Nice due to the fact that you can follow different shows and to by different souvenirs. Take in mind to see the horse... More

I don't like this boring place, will not go there again!!! The entrance fee was RMB150/person. It's not worth for that.

We visited Splendid China in the afternoon, but for the limited time, we could only visit the China Folk Culture Show and had no time to visit Miniature China. This culture show is really amazing. The performers were really professional with their beautiful costumes. This attraction is really worth it to see. One thing that amazed me too : in... More

There are different exhibits for many of China's 56 ethnicities, each one showing their buildings, clothing, tools, etc. There are Beijing Opera demonstrations, Inner Mongolian horseriding, acrobatic and dancing shows, and a water splashing war at night. It's better to go in the day as many of the exhibits/shows shut down at night (for example, the horseriding). The nighttime history/acrobatic/dancing... More

We have visited at around 5 clock in the afternoon and took a mini bus with a tour guide. The place is interesting as it pictures great sightseeings of China. The most enjoyable part of our tour was a live show about Chinese culture: acrobats, clowns, horses and a lot of dancing. The only drawback is the show in Chinese.... More
