What to See in the Window of the World in Shenzhen, China
The Window of the world is a theme park for the whole family. As an empty nester, my husband and I decided to explore the city of Shenzhen in one mid-autumn holiday. Shenzhen is a major city in Guangdong Province in Southeastern China.
It is called the window of the world because the park features 130 replicas of the world’s most famous tourist attractions.
Shenzhen is seated across the border of Hong Kong. They have an efficient public transportation system that you can easily go around the city.

Where To Stay In Shenzhen
During our trip to Shenzhen, we stayed at Marco Polo Hotel.
Marco Polo Hotel Shenzhen has a nice location where you can easily walk outside the hotel safely going to restaurants, convenience stores, shopping, and the metro train station is just nearby.
It’s a great place to stay for business and leisure travelers. It provides a wide range of recreation facilities including an outdoor swimming pool on the 4th floor, a fully equipped gym, and relaxing spa treatments.
We booked in a superior room and we were upgraded to a Deluxe room which was nice and clean with spectacular city views.
The Window of the world is great for a day trip. So be sure that you clear your memory cards, as there will be tons of photo-ops inside the park.
We came here without my daughter since she is attending college in NYC. If you can come here with children, you can definitely enjoy this place fully. There are shows throughout the park and if you want to watch the fireworks display, they light up the fireworks at 9 pm.
