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

Very easy to reach here, just used metro line and get down at Huaqiaocheng/Overseas Chinese Town (OCT) – exit D. With the admission fee RMB150, I can learn about China cultural and its habits, also enjoy with all the cultural show with additional cost but worth to see. Time for the show : - Horse war show : 11.30 am,... More

We were staying Hong Kong and came over for the day to look around. The Culture Village and Splendid China are beside each other and a really fun way to spend a day. While the shows are mainly in Chinese they are still great fun to sit through, especially the horse riding display. My daughter and I got to ride... More

This is a great little sightseeing stop, which you can plan on spending 2-4 hours depending on how much you like to stop and read/see everything. For foreigners, it's a good introduction to Chinese history, culture, and the diversity of architecture. For natives, it can also be a way to see parts of your own country if unable or unwilling...

Summary: You will need a full day if not more. Place is made up of two sections. Cost was 150 RMB for Adult. 1) First. Small miniature park where everything is small models of all the different areas of China. This is very educational and could take a day in it self. 2) Second. Real size attractions with lots of...

It's worth visiting and the place was huge. We watched a lot of performance with beautiful stage costume. Enjoyed cultural show, comedy, drama, dancing and history of China. Unfortunately we did not enjoy the restaurant food & service.
