Everyone dreams of travelling into different places at the same time and circumstances. If only we could have that kind of supernatural power to time travel or teleport, then we could have traveled and traveled every second of our lives getting to know people and their culture. Well, this idea seemed impossible not until Window of the World made it all possible.
This 48 hectare theme park with over 130 reproductions of the most famous landmarks in the world is located in Shenzhen, one of the top five cities in China. It was launched back in 1993 and continues to develop awareness of the different foreign cultural influences up to this day.
Now before I tour you around the world, let me show to you our world map.
This is the theme park’s map folded into two. Such a massive place to wander, right?
We arrived at the park’s ground at around 1pm; took a long shot before we proceeded to the main entrance.
Giving my thumbs up in the feels of excitement.
Upon entering, a stage to where they conduct their events will welcome you.
Through out our trip abroad, my mom was our official photographer. And this one was also taken by her; one of my favorite shots because of the towering Eiffel Tower behind us.
Striking my first pose on this post.
The intricate designs of the wall will surely make us appreciate more the people’s way of art decades ago.
A closer look to the wall.

An ancient Chinese gate
I have been searching all day long about this blue colored wall with unicorns. Hooray! After a whole day research, the same picture popped out on my screen. Well, it’s nice meeting you, Ishtar Gate of Babylon!
Photo opportunity with the Strauss Monument from Vienna, Austria
A Pumpkin Farm; particularly well-known around US.
My kind of wacky behind these scary-looking pumpkins.
A mini store full of Chinese snacks. FYI, they only accept Yuan dollars so if you are planning to buy for some refreshments or souvenirs here, better have your money exchanged in their currency first.
Fresh fruits coated with caramelized sugar good for 10 Yuan dollars.
Now, if you are looking for something heavy for your stomach, this Asian Restaurant is just right for you.
Another one, the Waterfall Restaurant.
Souvenir shops are available throughout the park too.

Eye bags full yet my smile is fuller. This is what you get by travelling everyday that time.

I have to thank my mom again for this nice shot! Niagara Falls of Canada, here I come!
The Great Sphinx of Giza
With your 50 Yuan notes, you can already ride on a camel and dress up in a costume.
Never thought that my brother could find a princess in the desert.
Window of the World did not only reproduced our physical world. Look, they also brought to life Alice’s Wonderland! Fantastic!
Fontaine de l’Observatoire of Paris
A typical landscape of Holland with windmills and tulips

Still in awe of the scenic place.
Didn’t know that this mosque also belongs to Taj Mahal.
Kek Lok Si Temple of Malaysia
Louvre Pyramid of Paris
We spent three hours in this picturesque place. As a matter of fact, within that three hours, we have strolled only about one half of the park but it was all worthy. If you are planning to include this in your next trip, you can visit their official website at : http://en.szwwco.com/ for show schedules and ticket prices.
Thank you for joining us in our mini world trip!
