Owner description: 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.

“People's culture village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

You get a fast overview from the different cultures in China through the history. I agree that the most spectacular event was the horseshow. I was also impressed about the accuracy about building especially nature from different parts of China into a miniature. Fx the rocks are taken from the places in spe. You can enjoy folklore at special times during the day. I could have used more than just one day in the park.

“Performances are amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Distinct from Splendid China, this part is mainly about performances, and there are plenty of them so research before if you can and plan ahead. The horse battle was incredible, and we paid extra for the theatre show, but it was worth every cent as the show went for an hour, the staging was great, table costumes and performances first class.

“Correct”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Correct if you have to spent half day in Shenzhen. The description of different Chinese ethnicity is very brief. The hose show is interesting.

“a pleasant walk through the gardens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

This is not the place to go during the summer heat. Having said that, I have been through the garden in every season, and completely enjoy the stroll. Much of the information is available in English, The park is not really large and the gentle hills make a nice stroll. One of the best things about the park is a little known, absolutely terrific playground in the very far back left hand side. It is one of the few playgrounds in Shenzhen that is appropriate for the 8-11 year old crowd, and is a welcomed break to play around for a bit. There are pleasant looking dining options in the park, which belies the true nature of the food.
