Neighboring Splendid China and China Folk Culture Villages, Window of the World was built in 1994, with an area of 480,000 square kilometers (185,329 square miles). It is a galaxy of 130 world famous wonders, gathering natural scenery, folk customs and high-tech entertainment together.

Window of the World is divided into different sections, with a world square, and an Asian, Oceania, European, African and American regions, plus a World Sculptures Garden and the International Street. There are a total of 118 world famous scenic spots in it, including the Pyramids of Egypt, the Temple of Amun, the Angkor Vat of Cambodia, the Grand Canyon Valley of USA, the Arc de Triomphe of France. They are remodelled in accordance to the real objects in proportions of 1:1, 1:5, and 1:15, detailed and natural. Take the miniature Niagara Falls for example; it is 80 meters (262.5 yards) wide with a drop of more than 10 meters (33 feet), roaring thunderously. Meanwhile, the Hawaiian volcano and the fountain spouting 100-meter-high (328 feet) into the air are also impressive. Some of them, like the Eiffel Tower of France, are reduced to one-third of the real tower, with a height of 108 meters (354.3 feet). Tourists can take an elevator to the top of the tower to feast their eyes on the scenic beauty of Shenzhen City and Hong Kong. Furthermore, the transport facilities in the park are well developed, including elevated-monorail tourist cars, sightseeing cars, ancient Euro-style carriages and rafts amongst others.

As the center of the tourist resort, the World Square can hold more than 10,000 people. On the square stand 10 famous sculptures of the world, 108 steles of different styles and nearly 2,000 square meters (about 0.5 acres) wall of bas-relief (ornament carved in the wall). There is also a gorgeous stage on the square, on which artists from all over the world put on wonderful performances.

The International Street is the commercial center of the park. In the architectural style of Europe, Asia and Islam, it is a combination of churches, fairs and streets, for the convenience of visitors to rest and to shop during their visit. Here, you will taste the different cuisines of France, Italy, Austria, Japan, plus taste German beer and Hawaiian ice-cream. You can also buy all kinds of souvenirs and crafts of the world on the street.

In a thick litchi orchard is the sculpture garden, in which there are more than 50 famous sculptures, including Monument of Johann Strauss, a discus thrower, the god of the sun-Apollo and a Thinker. All of them are astonishingly lifelike.

When night falls, Window of the world is decorated with colorful lights, presenting another kind of charming exoticism. There is a rotating art show named 'Night of Revel' held here every night, composed of world ethnic songs and dances as well as folk shows.
