In pictures: Beijing World Park

See the world's highlights in one day at the Beijing World Park

At Beijing World Park you can actually travel around the world in just one day. Famous historic sites, buildings and natural wonders from around the world are built in miniature at the park. Have you ever wanted to travel entire continents by monorail? Or cross an ocean by speedboat? Beijing World Park has got it covered.
Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral

Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral

The colour of the tiles don't match the actual colours exactly, but apart from that, the detailed copy is quite remarkable.

Hopefully the Bavarian beers don't come in miniature either.

Paris's Eiffel tower

Ce n'est pas vrais! The Eiffel Tower has shrunk!

Paris's Arc de Triomphe

Paris's Arc de Triomphe

There's a lot less traffic here than around the one in Paris. But then again, you can't climb this one.

London's Tower Bridge
5/13

London's Tower Bridge

We guess the red tiles were on sale. This version with red roofs looks a lot brighter (and Lego-like) than the grey roofs in London.

Egypt's Abu Simbel Temples
6/13

Egypt's Abu Simbel Temples

The real temples are over 3,000 years old. These replicas just celebrated their 23rd birthday.

Egypt's Pyramids of Giza

To look as genuine as possible, these pyramids are built of 100.000's small marble blocks.

Complete with a Harbour bridge in the background, the Sydney Opera House represents Australia at the park.

Burma's Shwedagon Pagoda

Just imagine you're looking at the real pagoda in Yangon, which stands 325 feet tall, is entirely covered in gold and decorated with thousands of diamonds and rubies.

India's Taj Mahal

India's Taj Mahal

Although a tiny bit smaller, the Taj Mahal is still pretty.

It's not only buildings and statues. The park also covers natural sights and gardening styles.

In miniature Manhattan, the World Trade Centre Towers are still standing strong.

Put on your Princess Sisi-gown (and shrink a few inches) to wander around Vienna's impressive cathedral.
