Tang Paradise (simplified Chinese: 大唐芙蓉园; traditional Chinese: 大唐芙蓉園; pinyin: Dàtáng Fúróng Yuán) is a large theme park near the city of Xi'an, in Shaanxi province, People's Republic of China. The park is at or near the site of an earlier garden complex in the Tang Dynasty, but consists almost entirely of modern construction.

The park features numerous buildings, squares, and gardens, all incorporating features of traditional Chinese architecture, such as eaves and cornices. Some features are named after historical sites or buildings.

The park is one of several modern reconstructions of ancient sites in Shaanxi, which involve anachronistic styles and features, most notably the use of wide stretches of concrete surfaces.

The setting, a landscaped 165-acre (0.67 km2) site surrounding a willow-lined lake, captures something of the look and feel of classical Chinese landscape painting.

In the evening the many thousands of visitors are treated to a spectacular Lake Show, featuring Lasers, video projection onto water screens, fountains and other special effects. The show was created by a UK company - LCI Projects Ltd.[1]
