Gourmet Travels in Shenzhen – Day 10: Window of the World 世界之窗

Are you thinking why I’m lazy these days at blogging? I wonder at myself as well! TBH, too many dramas to watch. Netflix, Crunchyroll and other various sites have taken over my Internet time. LOL!

My friends have asked me in recent days, do I still blog? Yes, I do… I’m not planning on quitting! Just being lazy to type. Sometimes I get writer’s block in the middle of a post too and it takes me a while to get back into the post…

Friday 6th July 2018

An adventure day!

Ready, set and go! Time to spend a whole day in hot China. We had planned to go to this theme park a few days earlier, but because of the weather and just getting into the swing of things in China, we didn’t go until this day.

So after breakfast, we made our way to the metro station. Missy I and I already had the training and kind of knew how to use the Chinese metro system. I think it was ¥4-5 (~£0.45-0.55 😒) per person. Chinese commuters are lucky. Tourists must persevere on looking at how things are inexpensive in China, although it might be expensive for those living in China. We had to change once to get onto another train… I think the girls were exhausted as the journey took an hour, and people were staring at them. I guess they were wondering if they could speak Mandarin, or where their father is from. Curious Chinese peeps. 

And so we ended up at the Shennan Boulevard South Side Station where the tourist site Window of the World attraction site is. It’s called 世界之窗  in Chinese (Mando: Shìjiè zhī Chuāng; Canto: sai gaai ji cheung).

First stop, McDonald’s! The food at the Window of the World mainly consists of pot noodles and other things so it was good that we found a McDonald’s.
I chose the World Cup special with a tropical juice.

It’s called the Gold Goal McSpicy Chicken Burger 金球麦辣鸡腿堡 (Mando: jin qiu mai la ji tui bao). That’s a mouthful name! … Forgot the price of the meal but it was worth trying!

Now off to this famous copycat attraction. 😅

Even the station is shaped as Paris’s Louvre Pyramid!

So my ticket cost me ¥200 (~£23). Quite expensive, but it’s the same as getting into a London attraction.

And now off we go! Just keep scrolling as I took many pictures on this day…

Hahahahahahahaha!!! I love this sign!!!

Oh! How did Grommit get to China?!

This Egyptian tomb is quite scary!! Make sure you have a torch with you!!

In love with the fake Niagra Falls!!

We cooled off in this building… I would have liked to be in here for a bit longer before braving the heat again…

I think I got a little heat stroke towards the end… It was a very tiring day. Even the girls couldn’t take on this attraction!
When we returned to our station, it was bucketing with rain! I didn’t bring an umbrella, but I was lucky to have bought a hat at the attraction which protected my head from the rain. Very lucky! 
That evening, I had the Chinese version of black bean noodles 炸酱面 (Mando: zha jiang mian; Canto: ja jeung min). Unlike the Korean version, this is more savoury. The Korean version is quite sweet. Thumbs up for the Chinese version! Plus I really like the noodles!!!

End of Day 10.
