The Window of the World (Chinese: 世界之窗; pinyin: Shìjiè zhī Chuāng; Jyutping: sai3 gaai3 zi1 coeng1) is a theme park located in the western part of the city of Shenzhen in the People's Republic of China. It has about 130 reproductions of some of the most famous tourist attractions in the world squeezed into 48 hectares (118 acres). The 108 metre (354 ft) tall Eiffel Tower dominates the skyline and the sight of the Pyramids and the Taj Mahal all in proximity to each other are all part of the appeal of this theme park.

Transportation[edit]
