Window of the World Theme Park, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China (Part 5)


Finally, here is my last post about the world squeezed theme park, Window of the World. here is the list of attraction in the Americas region;

The Grand Canyon

    Disneyland, U.S.A.
    Mount Rushmore National Memorial, U.S.A.
    The White House, U.S.A.
    Skyscrapers of the Manhattan borough of New York, New York, U.S.A.
    Mount Corcovado, Brazil
    The Statue of Liberty, U.S.A.
    The Houses of Parliament of Brasilia, Brazil
    The Totem-Poles of North American Indians
    The Statues of Warriors, Mexico
    The Capitol Building, U.S.A.
    Jefferson Memorial, U.S.A.
    Lincoln Memorial Hall, U.S.A.
    The Globose, Mexico
    The Statues of Easter Island, Chile
    Linear Drawings at Nasca, Peru

We weren't able to see all of the attractions because we spent much time photo-shooting in the grand canyon area.

The Grand Canyon replica is beautiful,  I could imagine the real landscape, triple the beauty, I guess. This was part of Utah's badlands. You could take a ride down the Colorado River through it in a small boat.

I know this has been a very lazy entry. My apologies guys, I ran out of words to describe it but I think, the pictures explained it well. Promise, this is my fifth and last post, lol!

The world is really huge and I want to explore every corner of it. I guess, that is one of the reasons why I work hard and hopefully get a good pension rate when I get a little bit old. Through pension comparison, I hope I could get one.

Window of the World Theme Park, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China (Part 3)

Let me take you to the the Mysterious Africa region. The miniature Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza in Egypt, Great Temple of Abu Simbel also in Egypt,  Lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt, The Dwelling-Houses of African inhabitants, The Ivory Gate, Kenya and The Africa Safari Park, Kenya are among the vivid replicas of the world's wonders.

Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza, Egypt

Indeed, Africa is always full of life, vigor and perhaps... mystery. One of the places that I dream of exploring in real life. I hope I would be able to fulfill my biggest dream of conquering the wonders of the world, and put marks in every attraction I've been to, like putting asset tags in every beautiful spot I visit.

The Great Temple of Abu Simbel, Egypt

Reflected by its visual art and architecture, Africa's culture is very rich and diverse. Distinct and indeginous music and dance, sports, and religion are some of the many reasons why I dream of exploring this region and personally witness the rhythm of their lives.

The Africa Safari Park, Kenya

Africa boasts perhaps the world's largest combination of density and "range of freedom" of wild animal populations and diversity, with wild populations of large carnivores and herbivores ranging freely on primarily open non-private plains. That I think is  a great adventure.

The Dwelling-Houses of African inhabitants

Window of the World Theme Park, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China (Part 1)

We spent almost two days in Hong Kong, been to Hong Kong Disneyland, visited Ngong Ping 360 and the Tian Tan Buddha Statue, and voyaged Sampan Tour Point in Aberdeen. The 2 days of non stop fun finally came to an end. I just thought it was but I was wrong. It was just the beginning or should I say a preliminary.

We woke up early on the third day because this is the day we headed farther north crossing the boundaries between Hong Kong and Guangdong, province of China. We’re going to Windows of the World baby! 

From our Hotel in Hong Kong, we were picked-up by the travel agency’s bus and took the MTR going to the boarder. Our tour guide presented group visa to pass through Chinese immigration along with other Filipino tourists. Another travel agency handled our tour when we set foot in China.

We had another visit to a local jewelry store and quick lunch. Instead of checking in to our hotel we then proceeded to the Windows of the World.
