Window of the World, Shenzhen, China.

Shenzhen is the bustling city in South China. It is situated between Guangzhou in the north and Hong Kong in the South. There are a few theme parks in Shenzhen like  Splendid China, China Folk Cultural Village and Window of the World. I am going to tell you about Window of the World.

This theme park occupied a large area in the west of the city where many world buildings representing many countries are located here. It has sub-themes like the World Square, Asia, Europe, Americas, Sculpture and International Street. Buildings of Asia, Africa, Americas and Europe are constructed in small sizes as replicas and they are sources of tourist attractions. To enter the park, you must pay RMB 120.00 per person.(as of 2013, it has increased to RMB 160.00). Once inside, you can take elevated monorail to view the overall park for RMB20.
