SHENZHEN, CHINA JANUARY 1: A copy of Manhattan stands at sunset at Windows Of the World Theme park on January 1, 2009 in central Shenzhen, China. The park, one of China's most popular, gives Chinese and tourists a view of famous landmarks around the world as miniatures, without traveling around the world. There are copies of the Eiffel Tower, Manhattan, and Pyramids, London, Venice, Rome etc. Chinese people love theme parks and new ones are opening constantly. It's estimated that there's about 2400 theme parks in the country. Many Chinese cannot afford to travel to Europe or America and the park gives them a chance to see famous landmarks.
