  1. That’s pretty awesome! I want to see.

  2. nad hanie says:

    cool

  3. MaJieMao says:

    Very cool and only in China

  4. That’s so awesome. I really would like to visit that one day; along with many other beautiful places that are in China (well, Asia too).

  5. not bad, but will be really cool if they made things in real size.

  6. MaJieMao says:

    Well a thousand years ago people were much shorter then today, but still looks a bit on the small side.

    Speaking of height difference, Asians these days are indeed taller. Not sure about the difference though; I guess it would be within an inch (or two) range.

    Regardless, I think the size is just nice. If we make it real (modern) size then some of the details might not be as easy to be observed by the visitors.

  8. I kinda like that it’s not actual size. It’s still not miniature, but it’s still a fair representation where you can see all the details and everything. It kinda has more beauty to it, with this size.

    Please someone tell me
    1.is this Clay sculpture park in Hebei Provine still exist or it is close.
    2.Statues are in proper shape or not.
    3 What is the entry fees.

    • Yein Jee says:

      I checked some Chinese websites. It’s still opened.
      Not sure about the condition. Entrance fees around 50 RMB.

      The official Chinese name for the place is 麻龙湾清明上河园
      You may have trouble finding the place if you can’t read/speak Chinese, from what I see they are not targeting international tourists.
