Gavin Menzies' book "1421" describes the voyages. Aspects of the book are speculative and some details are circumstantial, but the author is passionate about the story and I was delighted to have read the book before visiting the park. The replica vessel is worth a visit, and the environment is pleasant, but the interpretation is minimal and - after nearly ten years - the quality of the presentation is starting to deteriorate. I hope the city will restore and augment the displays; it was an extraordinary part of China's history.
