Window of the World

Window of the World is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Shenzhen. The park covers an area of 480,000m2 and is divided into the World Square, Asia Area, Oceania Area, Europe Area, North America Area, World Sculpture Park and International Street. Window of the World shows the Worlds key points of interest, natural scenes, world wonders, folk’ housing, sculpture etc; totally more than 130 scenic spots. There are also entertainment programs, but all of this never really attracted me to go to this park. When you drive along WotW you can clearly see a miniature version of the Eiffel tower in the park and the International street with the hotels in foreign styles.

Verdict: ?

I have not been here, so I cannot comment on it directly. If you would like to see international stuff inside Shenzhen, this is the place to go. It's like a miniature park from famous scenic spots all over the World.
