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.

I wanted to visit somewhere in Shenzhen that would get me out of the hotel and see some Chinese culture. The park was Cash Only and about $25US or 160RMB and we had to navigate through with no one speaking english, but that was part of the fun and experience. It is really for two parks in one, not just... More

I thought it was run down, and not really worth my time because we spent only three days in Shenzhen. It was unimpressive, maybe better when it was new to take a lot of selfies. But I wasn't a fan.

I like this a lot! I know it's not like so real as it is a theme park but I think it is really well researched and well done. The cultures are all encompassed here and it's quite enlightening. I like it a lot! Don't miss the performances!

Enjoying their dance performance booth indoor and outdoor. The dancer work really good and almost perfect. Minus the strict seating arrangement. People move the seat during the show up to they want without any control and this is something disturbing and really annoy for other visitor.

This is actually two parks. One with lots of miniatures, the other with the culture shows and buildings. Whilst the miniatures were certainly pretty impressive, our youngsters got bored fairly quickly and no matter how many great facts we found out, (the Great wall model is made from 6 and a half million bricks!) we quickly moved on to the...

I highly recommend this theme park rather than splendid China. I learn a lot about the minority folk cultures. I like the performance.

I normally don't go in for tourist attractions, but this one is just incredible - every significant historical and cultural landmark is recreated in painstaking miniature detail - including THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA! Well worth the modest price of admission, and conveniently located about 300m from a subway line. Plan to spend about 4 hours to see it all.... More
