Window of the World, located in Shenzhen Bay Community, Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, is a famous miniature scenic spot in China. With the purpose of promoting world culture, it is a man-made theme park that integrates the wonders of the world, historical sites, ancient and modern places of interest.
The park is divided into eight theme areas: World Plaza, Asia region, America region, Africa region, Oceania region, Europe region, Sculpture Garden and International Street. It displays more than 100 world-famous cultural landscapes and architectural miracles, such as the Eiffel Tower in France, the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, the Taj Mahal in India and the Pyramids in Egypt.
Window of the World is part of a theme park area of Shenzhen with three other theme parks nearby. The Shenzhen government organized the building of a special tourist and theme park zone in the Nanshan area of Shenzhen. At night, there are special dance shows you can see. Hundreds of dancers perform on a large stage, and there are the procession and fireworks display at 9 pm.
The reason why Window of the World can develop steadily in the highly competitive theme park market and become the best tourist scenic spot in China is that it takes culture and innovation as its core competitiveness. By 2006, the number of the scenic spots in the Window of the World has increased from 108 to more than 130; cultural theme activities are involved in the three golden weeks and the peak seasons; the top ten tourist participatory entertainment projects are packaged with culture, which forms the unique characteristics of the Window of the World.
In July 1999, Window of the World creatively made use of the existing resources of the scenic area to embark on the Colorado Adventure Rafting packaged with theme culture. As soon as the project was published, it was very popular with tourists, and all the investment was recovered within 20 months. Then in July 2000, the Alps Ski Resort, the first large-scale indoor real snow ski resort in China, was published in the Window of the World. With the European snow mountain culture as the background, it is not only favored by young tourists but also attracts many Hong Kong tourists to ski regularly. And items, like Through the Amazon Jungle which is the world’s longest electric slide, the first domestic 4D digital high-tech cinema with a 240-degree cylindrical ring screen, Asia’s first-class panoramic global stage, the Jurassic Dinosaur World, and the Inca City where you can explore the ancient civilization of South America, were also successively published in the Window of the World. Now it has transformed from a static sightseeing spot into a dynamic interaction playground in a few years.
Window of the World also combines the development of scenic spots with the changes of tourists’ demands, makes use of the profound cultural connotation of scenic spots, imports the most characteristic folk activities from all over the world into the scenic spots, and has cultivated some theme cultural festivals that are popular with tourists. Until the spring of 2006, the Window of the World has a distinctive theme activity in every peak season, such as the World Song and Dance Festival during the Spring Festival, the International Oktoberfest in summer, and the Pop Music Festival during National Holidays and so on, which have been gradually accepted by the market. At the same time, Window of the World also attaches great importance to the planning of foreign festivals, such as Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, and so on. In various festivals, Window of the World has exotic and distinctive theme activities and a series of performances, which has won a good market reputation and has become a highlight for the establishment of Shenzhen culture and the development of Shenzhen cultural construction.
