Places to Go: World Park (Beijing)


Located in the  far south of Beijing you can find the World Park (Shijie Gongyuan). It exhibits a fun collection of famous buildings and sights from all around the world – in miniature that is. When you go there you can visit Big Ben in London, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, enjoy the (outdated) skyline of New York, take a closer look at the Capitol and the White House than ever before, walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, follow the ancient trails of Incan culture, stop by the famed Opera House in Sydney, and enjoy Japanese architecture. You are invited to see the Great Wall, explore the royal palace in Thailand, marvel at the wonders of the Taj Mahal, and even Russia and the Kreml will be included in the trip around the world. You can visit the Holy City of Jerusalem, dive into ancient Egyptian culture, stop by the Acropolis in Greece as well as the Colosseum and the Vatican in Rome, and have you ever wanted to see the tower of Pisa with your own eyes? Well, if you go to the World Park, you can visit these places and many more … all in one day!

Last time I went, the entrance fee was reasonable and for extra payment you could get a set of headphones with an interactive map that would explain each of the sites you were visiting.
