China Folk Culture Villages

Introducing the China Folk Culture Village in Shenzhen!

As we all know, China is a big and united family made up of 56 ethnic groups. Geographically speaking, they are distributed in different parts of China with the resulting difficulty of experiencing each ethnic group's architecture, their festivals and tasting their snacks during one of your visits. But the China Folk Cultural Village, lying at the Overseas Chinese Town, Shenzhen, will help solve this problem.

Woke up quite late that day and we took 2hrs journey as usual to reach there.We bought the entrance ticket at RMB120 per pax.We had our lunch nearby before we moved into the miniatures theme park.
We had a good bargain for our lunch (Lunch around RMB78 if not mistaken).The restaurant provides us complimentary dessert after our main course. We had spicy tofu (really very spicy til we never touched it after a few round), Fried chicken which is super nice. Taste like fried prawn. I think because of the different part of chicken meat they used to cook and blends well with the special pepper to go with it. Then we have 'zhu du' pig's stomach with vegetable.

After filling our stomach, we start our journey exploring the huge themepark. So far the weather has not failed us. (has not rain yet). So, u can see me here at the entrance of the village..

If u happen to go there, you will see a very long dragon at the entrance also..

There is a map for you to explore and plan your journey before entering to the big maze..

There are the legendary chinese zodiac displayed and took every single one.

The Sheng xiao (Chinese: 生肖; pinyin: shēngxiào), better known as Chinese Zodiac, are 12 animals which are representative of years in some East Asian countries. Each year of the 12-year cycle is named after one of the original 12 animals. Each animal has a different personality and different characteristics.
Despite being called “Chinese zodiac”, it is not a variation of zodiac. The
Chinese zodiac refers to a pure calendrical cycle; there are no equivalent constellations like those of the occidental zodiac.

P/S: Saw a finger in the pic showing the rat statue?Tat's me.. *grins*

Sorry guys but i have 500over photos and it's quite impossible for me to upload one by one here. Therefore, same as the previous post, i edit into a summarize pic and you can click on the picture to see larger image ya...

The village comprises the chinese cultural since the dynasty and the workmanship is terrific. I can say that China people are very capable copying and craving the art.

It's quite fun to go around the places and see the actual legendary items and feel the ambience there. It's like back to the ancients time. If only we have the time machine..haha!

The village has the different chinese ethics buildings and indigenous people who is living in China for the past millions thousands of year. It's really a very long history and i think i will take ages to understand every single of it. Anyway, picture says all...

I like this. I experienced it myself. Really need to have a build strong stamina to operate this thing. It's quite tiring and i personally tried it in few mins time. I start to perspiring.haha!

This is called the Water wheel.

A water wheel is a machine for converting the energy of flowing or falling water into more useful forms of power, a process otherwise known as hydropower. In the Middle Ages, waterwheels were used as tools to power factories throughout different counties. The alternatives were the windmill and human and animal power. The most common use of the water wheel was to mill flour in gristmills, but other uses included foundry work and machining, and pounding linen for use in the manufacture of paper.
A water wheel consists of a large wooden or metal wheel, with a number of
blades or buckets arranged on the outside rim forming the driving surface. Most commonly, the wheel is mounted vertically on a horizontal axle, but the tub or Norse wheel is mounted horizontally on a vertical shaft. Vertical wheels can transmit power either through the axle or via a ring gear and typically drive belts or gears; horizontal wheels usually directly drive their load.
A mill pond is formed when a flowing stream is dammed to feed a waterwheel. A channel for the water flowing to or from a water wheel is called a
mill race (also spelled millrace) or simply a "race", and is customarily divided into sections. The race bringing water from the mill pond to the water wheel is a headrace; the one carrying water after it has left the wheel is commonly referred to as a tailrace.[1]

Not to mentioned i need to highlight this particular pic. It's my ancestor building builed in a round shape. All the Hakka people stay together under the same root. It's a very big community.The province is located at Fujian,China based on the description from the display miniature.

They are often referred to as the "Jews of China." (stated by the wikipedia).

It's raining cats and dogs throughout the tour in the village and XP got many mosquitoes bite. We also need to keep our umbrella open.'s a good experience going through the tour. I think this tour is worth while compared to the window of the world.hehe!

Lastly, a reflection photos taken from the raindrops and i'm loving it.
