I stayed here over Christmas break when I first moved to SZ and It was a really pretty and was a great place to start my Chinese experience. It's not traditional Chinese as it feels more western but it sure was beautifully decorated for Christmas. There were a number of evening shows and the hotel was amazing with continental breakfast.... More

Nice to visit and has many attractions including tea producing gardens and a 5star hotel in a Swiss model village. A lot of walking but worth a visit. Plan on spending a full day.

There are over 100 booths set up in the OCT, visitors are coming from all around but not just local people. Artists are able to communicate in multi-language. Lot's of fun there, host different exhibitions almost, should go online and check. Have about 10 restaurants and coffee shops, no worry about food.

Recreated to resemble a traditional old Chinese water-town, OCT is rather touristy with bars, restaurants and all sorts or food and beverage outlets. I would strongly recommend a meal at The Old House if you can bear waiting for a table.
