Shenzhen Window of the World

Shenzhen Window of the World is something that you will not miss when you come to Shenzhen. It’s a very large park. I don’t know the area exactly; but it’s very well within the city.

The Window of the World contains about 130 replicas of globally renowned tourist spots and global wonders; to name a few...the Eiffel Tower, the Pyramids of Egypt, Niagara Falls and the Taj Mahal of India., all with in a same park !

The whole park itself is divided into the World Square, Asia Area, Oceania Area, Europe Area, North America Area, World Sculpture Park and International Street, each with it’s popular spots/wonders.

The sizes of the replicas are created with exact proportion to their real ones. (usually they are 1:1, 1:5 and 1:15 of the actual structure) and placed in respective squares - geographically.

It is a kind of cultural exhibition, including historic relics, key points of interests, natural sceneries, world wonders and art, ..etc.
Originally, it was created as an introduction to international cultures for the local tourists. Even though it may not serve the same purpose for overseas travelers, it is still a fun and interesting day out.
