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 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

A lot of things to see and to learn, a must go! Near the window of the world, which is also a must see. A very satisfying day trip!

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

We visited the village at night, so it was almost closing time, but we were impressed with the lighting and the romantic atmosphere. Highly recommended to visit.

There are also life sized traditional homes from different parts of China, a traditional Chinese village, and a stage with a live traditional Chinese play. Nice restaurant is also on site with Chinese food. Good for a half a day visit. Definitely worth a visit if... More

I prefer this to windows of the world which is the same but landmarks around the world, as you get to see places around China. Best to try and go on a weekday if you can as its... More

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
