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.

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.

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

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.

The heat and heavy crowds over New Years break week were just too much for me, so I decided not to go in the village on the day I got there. I did, however, enjoy people watching around the beautiful entrance to the park and took pictures. There is a monorail and overpass at the park for tourists and visitors... More

Attached to Spendid China, the combination of China Folk Culture Village and Splendid China is a wonderful experience for locals and visitors. You will get a comprehensive view and experience of what the different areas and historical periods have looked like at the Culture Village and then can see hundreds of landmarks at Splendid China Park. There is quite a... More
