Windows of the world 世界之窗 – Shenzhen, China
This is a theme park showcasing the world’s famous landmarks/features in miniature.
I read a lot of reviews about this place (e.g. tripadviser, thethemeparkguy.com) before deciding to head over to see for myself. Overall, I thought it was pretty good and I think its a nice place to get lost in when you are traveling alone in a theme park.
The park is huge and some online reviews say that the park is not very well maintained, but I thought that it was clean and quite well kept, considering the land space it takes up (48 hectares (118 acres) – according to Wiki). Some attractions did look like its a little neglected, but I think sometimes being a little run down can help to ‘age’ the displays so it looks a little more like the real thing.
Anyways, just to share with you some of the amazing things I saw!
