Henan (Chinese: 河南) is a province of the People's Republic of China, located in the central part of the country. Henan is often referred to as Zhongyuan or Zhongzhou (中州) which literally means "central plain land" or "midland", although the name is also applied to the entirety of China proper. Henan is the birthplace of Chinese civilization with over 3,000 years of recorded history, and remained China's cultural, economical, and political center until approximately 1,000 years ago.

This is a Chinese cultural theme park showing a variety of activities and historical events from the Song dynasty that had its capital in Kaifeng. It is definitely not a high brow cultural centre but is very popular with Chinese tourists, and does have plenty of activities to see. The trick is to follow the sequence of demonstration events which are numbered and timetabled on the map handed out at the entrance. Overall, this park will mainly work if you have a Chinese guide who can explain the events and something about the historical context. There are stalls and shops dotted around, plus a good sized food area. Amongst the stalls are a few artisans with interesting crafts (eg sugar figure blower and hot pokerwork on wood). There is a night show with lights but we went during the day.
