The Beijing World Park, located in south-western Fengtai District, is 17 kilometres from Tian'anmen and 40 kilometres from the Beijing International Airport. The park has 100 man-made and natural attractions from nearly 50 countries throughout the world.
The park covers an area of 46.7 hectares. The layout is modelled after the five continents and four oceans, incorporating national icons and folk-traditions of the world. Most of the architectural structures are built from marble, some with exquisite carvings. These reproductions are vivid.
The main gate of the park consists of a group of buildings. The Gothic castle, Roman corridor, and granite relief sculptures form an imposing scene. Entering the gate, visitors will see a life-size Italian terrace garden, with magnificent stepped buildings, fountains and figure sculptures of the Renaissance, full of European romanticism. The park is divided into five areas: Asia, Africa, Europe, America and Latin America. Taking a speedboat one can have a "global voyage;" and if one takes a battery-operated car, he can sightsee around the park. The "Special Joy Adventure City" is a cinema with the latest technologies, and by visiting the "Modern African Primitive Folklore Exhibition" one can experience the life of the original inhabitants of Africa. From May to October, the park features the cultural activities of various countries. In the park visitors can taste their cuisine and buy tourist souvenirs from those countries.
Since its opening in 1993, the Beijing World Park has received 1.5 million visitors annually.
The park has added new items every year. Of China's theme parks, the Beijing World Park is outstanding in term of its exquisite architecture, rich and colourful activities and cultural atmosphere. Visitors can travel the world in one day, and the park has become a window displaying diverse cultures of the world.
