Shenzhen – Window of the World

Always wanted to see the world and never had the time? make the time, because I doubt Shenzhen’s Window of the World will do it for you. If anything, Window of the World can serve as a mediocre reminder of the grandeur and beauty of these places to those who have actually already travelled to these places. In that sense, I was surprised to learn just how many famous places around the world I’ve personally been to. I’d say that I’ve definitely seen more than 50% of the world monuments presented there.

The park hosts cultural shows across the park in short intervals, with dancing, ceremonies, acrobatics, 4D movies and games. Here’s a short video of the East Asian dance show.

 

The greatest fun in this park, I guess, is to try and recognize the places and check if you’ve been there before or not.

If you decide to go up the Eiffel tower (~20yuan), there are some nice views of Shenzhen and the boarding river with Hong Kong.

Entrance is 120yuan, although going up the Eiffel tower, taking the monorail or bus, and seeing some of the shows will cost you extra. Open from 09:00 to 22:30. Located at the Overseas Chinese Town, and you can conveniently get there by subway.
