How of often can you snap a photo of USA's four presidents? We did that with a replica Mount Rushmore at 小人國,Windows on China(Woc). WOC is a miniature theme park in TaoYuan (桃园), Taiwan.
As the name implies, we get to tour mini Europe, USA, and Asia (sorry no South East Asia). We spent a good 6 hours here and 900 photos ! You can view all Taiwan photos at SengkangBabies fanpage.
Shall we start with Taiwan first?
We saw HSR (High Speed Rail), and even the logging-trains from Alishan (阿里山).
We visited the docks, saw the moving cranes and helicopters.
Next Airport and highway. Kids were running around exclaiming everything can move!
Quick, before we miss our flight.
Daddy saw this building on Day 2 (國立中正紀念堂), now Wei can touch it too.
Can you see the Zoo animals moving?
Next, China got so many famous landmarks!! and ancestral villages.
Forbidden City (紫禁城) looks imposing from a small sale, imagine the Real thing !
Buddha statues (not sure from Thailand or the one demolished in Afghanistan)
Look, even our kids are having fun snapping away !
We need to commute on a train to reach another continent :p
Majestic Taj Mahal !
We skip water theme park, as we were not prepared to get wet :)
Then we walk to Japan

After Japan, we walk to continent Europe. Big rocks from Stonehenge !
Old old Cathedrals
Olympics started from here, at Athens Greece.
Daddy could not resist peeping :p
Daddy and Mummy showing the kids how to be candid :0
Wei liked the colourful domes at Russia Red Square.
We took a second look at the buildings, via a river boat.
Starving after touring so many countries, let us tuck into our lunch !
After lunch, we visited USA's Nasa, nope, we cannot sit on the Shuttle Columbus !
Mr Obama, are you home?
We spotted Peru's Inca and stately President Lincoln.
Statue of Liberty (kids remember her from the movie "Day after tomorrow")
..more Fun time posing with cool museum
After touring the World, our kids enjoy their own amusement themepark :)
Doraemon is found in amusement park
If you want your kids to learn about geography and countries, we will recommend WOC for a half-day trip. To Daddy, this was a hugh playground for his photography passion !
Adult fare is TW650, about $30SGd. Click for Pricing info.
Disclaimer : we did not seek permission to cross a few barriers, in order to get real close to the miniature buildings, do it at your own risk haha :p
