Splendid China: The Disney Land of Sinicization!
James Griffiths, Vice
In the week before Chinese New Year, I visited Splendid China – a place that might have been Mao's nationalistic vision of Disneyland. The park's stated mission is to condense "the Chinese history, culture, places of interest, folk arts, and customs" into one easily accessible destination in Shenzhen, about an hour from Hong Kong. And that includes little areas set out for the western provinces.
