0 A Chinese them park full of detailed landmarks from around the world (20 HQ Photos) BY BOB 8/8/2014 IN: AWESOME, HIGH-RES, TRAVEL 1 British photographer Luke Casey spent 3 1/2 months traveling in Hong Kong when he realized how much faster he could see the world by visiting one theme park in nearby Shenzhen. The park Window of the World, created in 1994, features amazingly detailed reproductions of 130 major tourist attractions, some life-size and some much smaller, squeezed into a 118 acre plot of land. As Casey put it, “Why visit those places for real when you can get all those photos and souvenirs in one place?” Seen here you can see the wall and clock-tower of the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia. 2 In the America section, the White House can be seen in close proximity to Mount Rushmore. 3 Much of the Americas section also includes natural landmarks like the Grand Canyon where visitors can ride down the Colorado River and Niagara Falls (seen here). 4 Here you can see the riverside view of Piazza San Marco, with the Eiffel Tower in the background. 5 At 354 feet, the park’s version of the Eiffel Tower is one-third the size of the real thing. 6 One leg of the Eiffel Tower 7 The theme park is divided into eight areas that cover all of the major continents. The landmarks from Oceania include the Sydney Harbor Bridge, Ayer’s Rock, and the Sydney Opera house seen here. 8 The Pyramids of Giza from a distance. 9 The park’s replica of Manhattan hasn’t changed the skyline to reflect 9/11. And as you can see Christ the Redeemer of Rio De Janeiro makes an appearance in the background. 10 The skyline of Shenzhen is easily seen behind a replica of Japan’s Mount Fuji. Interesting choice. 11 Here you can see Basilica Di San Marco in the park’s replica of Venice’s Piazza San Marco. 12 London’s Tower Bridge spans over a small pond in the theme park. 13 This is a replica of the Temple of The Emerald Buddha at the Royal Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand. 14 The Netherlands section features a typical Dutch landscape, with a windmill and tulips. 15 The replica of Egypt’s Abu Simpel Temples is detailed, however they fail to capture the desert landscape where the landmark is located. 16 Here you can see a mini version of the Taj Majal. 17 This log flume goes through American National Park-themed areas. 18 Traveling the 119-acre park by foot can be exhausting, so the park provides a little ride to help usher people around. 19 You can even go inside the pyramids and see other fake Egyptian relics. 20 Via Businessinsider SIGN UP FOR NEWSLETTER!
