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.

It's a nice enough way to spend an afternoon but the whole place could do with a bit of TLC. There are some good views of the surrounding city. It's a good place to visit but not at the top of my list of things to do in Shenzhen.

It's the sister park to Shenzhen's Window of the World. It shows miniatures of all the types of Chinese Architecture from History. It's a very large park so take plenty of water with you. The park also offers other attraction such as a horse show, a karate show and tradition Chinese dances. It's a fun day for everyone.

The admission fee is 180 yuan which you can access both the Folk Cultural Village and Splendid China. They are both interesting and is... More

all the major architecture and tourist attractions of China are miniaturised in this theme park. It's great if you are visiting China for the first time and just want a quick taste. or use it as an introductory visit

A constructed village putting on a display that is carefully planned. The show theatre had tiny seats making an hour there uncomfortable.
