About
This worthwhile attraction is part of Overseas Chinese Village (better known as OCT) and showcases the myriad minority ethnic cultures that make this vast country much less homogenous than imagined. It also serves as a great introduction to the history and traditions of China.

A massive miniature model country. Needs a full day and probably an evening; we noticed big crowds queuing for the light show at sundown and this would be a great option.

Having lived in Beijjng for 3 years and toured around a bit we were impressed with the accuracy and intricacy of Forbidden city, heavenly and summer palaces models etc...the Great Wall model is Cecile B De Mille epic.

Food was inexpensive and regional snacks readily available. A big issue for young families is the availability of toilets and SC provided lots of clean and convenient facilities. Wheelchair friendly attraction.

Splendid China has an old school charm; inventiveness, pride and inspiration to travel more. This easily could have been naff but was really very delightful. Will visit again to complete the other half of China.

Excellent Akimbo cafe next door also.

One day is not enough to see the whole place but it's not that interesting though...

Unless you are into miniature works...its quite great....its like seeing the whole of China in one place...but fake miniature creations that are as tall as people or a bit higher....

it has chinese opera shows...magic shows...and decent restaurants and a lot of street food style...

One good thing is they have motorized bikes u can rent to go around the whole place...because its big!!

I’m negative by nature, but I have nothing but pleasant feelings about Splendid China.

Clean, nice, friendly. An an amazing entertainment value.

Especially so if you’re as ancient as I am.

I visited this cultural village in 2006. It was amazing then and highlighted the ethnic "minorities" in China. A worthwhile visit if you are in Shenzen. An interesting fact is that the Govt of China are encouraging "minority" ethnicities to increase their populations.

Good value . Excellent presentation. The centre has exhibits from the many different cultures from China. There is two parts to Splendid China. One is the Cultural Village theother is miniature world . Both are included in the one price. If you are over 70 then it is free.

You might spend a whole day here because so many things you can see. and it is deserved. I with my tour guide come here to relax and see the Chinese cultures when I am free. With an English tour guide is much easy to understand the cultures because you can ask him to explain.

First: they want a passport to buy tickets.
We used driver license and they agreed.
It not cheap and cash only.

It’s like a mini-China, well taken care of but not that impressive.

Going around the city is better.

China folk culture village is nice, there are a lot of things to see and in the evening they have cool shows. It’s fun for 1 time, just a little bit overpriced.

The Folk Culture Village has been superbly and I would think authentically designed. Wear comfortable shoes if you wish to explore it thoroughly. As one walks around there are various entertainers that one can stop to watch, ranging from balancing artists to puppet shows. The absolute highlight was the two cultural shows we attended. One show demonstrated amazing costumes and colorful symbolic dresses. The operatic type music was powerful yet beautiful. The second show re-enacted what I think was the Genghis Khan battle, along with fireworks, bangs, fires, horses, lambs and various machinery. Felt totally awestruck. It’s performed in Chinese, with minimal English prompts on two large screens. I did feel that I left with a greater understanding of some of China’s rich history and cultural diversity. The gymnastic acumen of both men and women during both shows was mind boggling. The only downside was the use of live animals including horses, peacocks and lambs. We did not eat there, so I am unable to comment on the food. There was a large variety available though, ranging from street vendor type foods to various restaurants.
