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.

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

If you have a very limited time, but you also would like to know the China people, tribes, villages, etc...in 1 place, then I HIGHLY recommend this place. It is a huge place, please prepare 1 day to go, good in morning & afternoon time. Bring also your small umbrella and drinking water.

The Metro Stop OCT is a couple of minutes from the entrance. The attractions of the Dance of dragons and phoenix as well as the Battle with the horses was fantastic. Could not write enough about it, just want to go again one day.

Dont miss the shows, especially the horse battle field. Costumes, music, acrobatics and theater round out a perfect introduction to Chinese culture. Nice souvenirs and a beautiful park.

It's by far the most interesting village museum I have ever visited. You can find lots of houses and settlements from the whole China, many of them with their original interior. It's a place where you should definetely spend one day.
