Splendid China · China Folk Culture Villages is a theme park consisting of two areas — a miniature park opened in 1989 and a park of Chinese folk culture villages opened in 1991.
The two parks were merged later and the theme reflects the history, culture, art, ancient architecture, customs and habits of various nationalities. It is one of the world’s largest scenery parks in terms of the amount of scenarios reproduced.
Eighty-two major Chinese tourist attractions have been miniaturized and laid out according to the map of China, making it possible to visit the Great Wall of China, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, Three Gorges Dam, Potala Palace and the Terracotta Soldiers all in one day. The park also hosts several shows depicting various events in Chinese history, such as horse-riding shows depicting a battle led by Genghis Khan.
