I learned so much about the 5 different folk tribes in china during the tour. This park was a delightful respite from the concrete landscape we've been exposed to for 2 weeks. Loved learning about the traditions, old ways, fabulous customs and Costumes. Most importantly, we danced, sang, walked, road the carriages, and best of all had tea at various... More

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!

Nice day for a visit after lunch. Go for a walk to capture all the beautiful attractions in the park. Just stroll and explore.
