SHENZHEN: Window of the World

smile!

Window of the World in Shenzhen is a replica park of famous sites in the world. The Eiffel tower which is a 1:3 ratio of original one in Paris is the most visible reproduction. Aside from the Eiffel tower, WOW also showcases The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps of Rome, Lazio of Italy, A typical landscape of Holland, with windmills and tulips, Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza, Egypt, The Lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt and a lot more.

They got different relicas for each region with a ratio of 1:3, 1:5,1:15. My favorite replicas were the windmills and the pyramids. They also have a replica of Angel Falls and The Alps which also has a skiing adventure at an additional cost.
