Why It’s Possible to Go Around the World in Under a Day

Shenzhen, China has become a special city for me. Despite the mishaps that we had to encounter from our tour, the state was still a momentous one because of the illustrious ‘Window of the World’ theme park. The well-known site has about 130 miniature replicas of the most famous tourist attractions all over the globe. Exploring the 48-hectare land can be done in a day. But we only got to see at least half of the world’s wonders since we were already strapped for time. Anyway, here are some of our awesome photos from the park.


GOT TO SEE: Paris’ Louvre Pyramid and Eiffel Tower, Greece’s Acropolis of Athens, Garden of World Sculptures and the Totem-Poles of North American Indians.
