Window on China Theme Park, Taiwan - Part I: Miniature World

Date of Visited: 21 December 2010

On the second day of our trip, we went to the Window on China Theme Park or in Chinese known as
小人國 (I skipped the boring part of visiting one of the old streets) which is located in the area of northern Taoyuan area, right just next to the Taoyuan International Airport.

Window on China Theme Park is one of Taiwan's amusement park and the main attraction is where they display miniature of historical buildings and famous international landmarks around the world.
Window on China Theme Park is more similar to the one located in Shenzen but these 133 miniature landmarks are all perfectly presented on a 1 to 25 scale to the original building whereas the one in Shenzen showcases in a human-size scale models.
