A view of Shenzhen from Lychee Park
The attraction we spent time in here is called the China Folk Cultures Center. We were told that when this was built, they consulted with the people at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii, so I had great expectations for this site. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations.
The grounds were absolutely beautiful, but pretty much everything beyond that seemed to be all form and no substance. There were costumed characters representing different parts of China, but there was no interaction with them at all. Everyone in costume could wave and say "hello" but that was the extent of anything remotely interactive. There was no opportunity to learn how people in the different regions live.
Most of the buildings were miniature versions of what one might see, and the ones that were full size were just facades - with nothing inside. (Except occasionally there would be a shop or a place to eat.)
In the late afternoon we saw a traditional Chinese dance performance that was excellent and had beautiful costumes, but they didn't allow anyone to take photos. That was followed by the worst meal of our entire trip. :-/
After dinner, our buses took us to the Shenzhen International Airport for our flight to Guilin. This is one of the most beautiful airports I've been in - with huge, expansive, honeycomb-like ceilings. I wish I had taken pics of it. I saw a photo of the exterior of the airport, and it looked like a sort of futuristic airplane shape. Very cool!
