If you have been visited the Window of the world before, you will feel this attraction is just a so-so. But of course considering the entrance fee & buggy ride cheaper that the window of the world, you can understand it. For me the entrance fee RM 180 is still too expensive. The buggy will cost you RMB 60/hour. If... More

Me & my family were staying at Intercontinental Shenzhen and this attraction was very nearby. It is also easily accessible via Metro, just get off at the OCT (overseas China own) station and take exit A. The experience was very good. although we were in a hurry to wrap up the tour but there is lots to see and admire.... More

This is all part of the same complex as the splendid china park. The theme park has two sides one on splendid china (think miniature village, but with china landmarks like the great wall etc), while the other half is the so called folk culture village. As you walk around there are examples of lost of different regions/tribes of china.... More

I found this really interesting for finding out about the culture and history of China and it's people. Definitely worth the the effort. The show in the evening is meant to be a great finale but I was too tired by that time. Make sure you check out the various shows...even in Mandarin, they are still entertaining!

China Folk Culture Village is full of little houses supposed to depict the "56" ethnicities of the country. Even though it might seem a bit weird (like a "human zoo") it's actually very interesting and some horse-riding shows from Mongols and Manchus in traditional costumes make it enternaining. If you get to the right hours, you may also see some... More

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.
