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.

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

There is quite a... More

This is another outdoor museum, with a variety of live performances to add information and visual appeal. The mock battle involving horse-mounted opposing forces was entertaining, and the 3D video about China's attractive landmarks was informative. The park is clean and well-maintained, and quiet enough on school days. In fact, until about 6 pm, when we were leaving, the place... More
