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.

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

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

The Dancing concert was really amazing. Very colorful and attractive. If you are a visitor you will get to know about the history of china. How it was built with the live war simulations. Spend the whole day. Value for your money

The village is a large open space with so much to offer about the different culture within China. The beautifully made replicas of old houses, bridges, rivers, parks, monasteries etc gives you a better understanding of the country and it's people. Lush green with well preserved and manicured trees makes the place even more enchanting! Directional signage are well placed... More

This is an amazing tourist park with replicas of much of different parts and times in China. Much of it is interactive and would appeal to people of all ages. The map was in English too and at each exhibit, an explanation was written and narrated in both Chinese and English. It would be a great place to teach kids... More
