Splendid China Folk Park, Shenzhen (visited in 2015)
Splendid China Folk Park is made up of two parks- Splendid China Miniature Village and China Folk Culture Village. Both contain very few rides in the sense thought of in connection with theme parks, but rather they are examples of themed and immersive landscaping, building and entertainment.
Shenzhen as a city in China has a particular significance as it was the first Special Economic Zone (SEZ). Created in 1980, the SEZs represented an experiment by the Chinese government to accelerate economic growth in the zone by giving special tax benefits and preferential treatment to foreign investment. In order to attract tourism, Shenzhen has a dense concentration of themed parks and immersive experiences.
