Our original plan for day 2 was to go Guangzhou in the morning, however, it was changed then when Jo suggested us to walk around in Shenzhen first. We took the subway from first station, Lo Wu to the last station and all I was told were Paris, Eygpt, Rome and etc. What’s on actually? Aren’t we in Shenzhen now?
As we got off the MTR and wanted to walk up the escalator going to this place Jo mentioned. We received a ‘warm welcome’ from a little girl with roses in her hand, when we were walking towards our destination. What a ‘surprise’. To be honest, we were not prepare at all for the ‘gifts’ and really got shocked! This little girl appeared in front of us without us realising it, because at first i thought she was with her family, secondly she look harmless and then “WHAM!!” she rush towards as and hug my gf’s legs and refused to let her go. Jo was trying to drag the little girl away and told her that we didn’t want to buy roses, but this doesn’t work till she saw another couple coming from far and realised my gf from her torment. Actually we do pity the little girl but if we give her money, there will be more children that will come and beg for us again. This is just the tactic of China’s sindiket. Even KL is already like this in Jalan Alor, little girl with a tissue box rings a bell?
Anyway, what’s this unpleasant experience compare to the replica park – Window of the World that really ‘opens up’ my eyes?
If travelling around the world is your dream, then Window of the World would definitely be an ideal place to visit. Here you can see vivid replicas of world’s famous sites, all in just a days time. All the masterpiece are built at the ratios of 1:1; 1:5: 1:15.
Walking around this park could be extremely tiring, that’s why we decided to rent a small car/bike or whatchamacallit and drove around ourself. There is no way that we can kill our legs on the second day of our journey. But if you’re afford to pay more, this would be a good idea to surprise your partner.
We didn’t manage to finish all 100 over attractions and watch any of the performances. We also cannot name all the attractions here, but most of the attractions do have the ‘wow’ effect on us. I will definitely be coming back here again and spend a whole day just to see the attractions.
This item is called duck blood noodles, 鸭血粉 (RMB10), but in fact it some yellow noodles tossed with pickles and chili oil. Hunan’s specialty, taste good also.
My gf ordered this thing which looks like kebab, 肉夹镆 (RMB10), which is stuffed with minced lamb meat, prepared with their secret sauce. Again, it’s another spicy food. Thanks God that it didn’t give us stomach pain during our journey to Guangzhou after that. Even though we didn’t have enough time in Windows of the World, but we still enjoy it though. We will definitely be back to Shenzhen again very soon. For the food, the excitement and many many more.
