A theme park worthy a visit. It is supposed to introduce different cultures from around the world. However, some places are run down and don't really reflect the reality of the place or country in question. All in all, enjoy the stroll.

An interesting theme park to visit. Could not help but feel the Asian country exhibits were rather dull and run down. Some of these like the Thai village etc does not really showcase the beauty of the country in question. The German and French villages were however entertaining, well kept and had good F&B options.

Very interesting place. There is a collection of items from many places around the world. However, it feels kinda strange. Nevertheless, recommended as an experience if you have the time. Go there early to take full advantage of events etc.

Little World is similar to Epcot. It has areas of many different countries/regions. Many of them are traditional house or buildings. You can eat traditional food and try on traditional clothing at most of the areas. If you're going go all out and do everything, it will be on the pricey side. They also have many different events or special... More
