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

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

This theme park gave us an overall impression of the regions, people and style of housing in every part of China. A great place to visit if you are short on time.

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
