    BiJiaShan - BiJia 'Mountain'

    by Hekima Written Sep 14, 2009

    The name in Chinese implies a mountain, let's call it a mountain'ish' hill range. It's located in a huge park that caters the common entertainment facilities here in China - a lake with boats for physical exercise, playgrounds, small fishing area, small kiosks.... It even has a small museaum about urban development.
    The hills can be climbed from different directions - on a path or stairs. I tend to walk the paths, since they guide you round the mountains. There is two major, publicly accessible hills. When walking the paths you will reach a lookout from where to climb them. I mean climb, as they can only be reached by stairs. Not many, but you will loose some breaths. From one hill you will have a nice view on the Shenzhen Stadium and Swimming Pool of Futian. Otherwise, the view is blocked by trees. On the other hill the view is much better - different directions. You will see the small lake of the park, which looks incredibly far and one wouldnt think so when being down there.
    Climbing down all the way to the park can be done via stairs - it is fast, but you will feel the pain in your calves the next day - it's a lot of stairs and not all fit the DIN ;-)

    Happy Valley

    It's also at Nanshan Road, cross street from Window of the World and Chinese Culture Village.
    It's a Disney like place. It has been expanded many times. I didn't visit it recently since I don't like to play those risky games at all. I heard some of my friends they really like it and they think it's better than the Disney park in Hong Kong.

    Window of the World

    by enzhu Updated Jan 3, 2008

    It was also 120RMB for the ticket. It's not cheap but you can see different architectures in one day. There are Eiffel tower, Pyramid, White House, Niagara Fall and even a Manhattan Island! I think it's a good place to see and it may give you many surprise.
    There should also be a parade and firework show in the night, but I didn't see it for years since I'm always to tired to wait to the night.

    Chinese Culture Village

    by enzhu Updated Jan 3, 2008

    Please see more photos in my travelogue.
    The ticket price was 120RMB, it's a little pricy however you will be able to see different types archetectures from different Chinese minorities. They also sing and dance in their traditional dressing. They may even ask you to dance with them. It's a good place to know about diversity in China.
    The park also merged with the other park, Splendid China. You need only one ticket you can visit both parks now. Splendid China is replica of some famous Chinese architectures in a small form. I don't really like that. I'll recommend you spend more time in the culture village.
