Located in the Hongshan and Haibaoshan areas in Jinning, the theme park will feature exhibition center and theatre of ancient Yunnan culture, ethnic style-themed streets, a shopping center, a entertainment center etc, with an investment of 22 billion yuan.

Zheng He (1371-1433) was the greatest navigator in ancient China. He had successively led his fleet on diplomatic missions to Asian and African countries for seven times.

Jinning County, which is located at the southeast of Dianchi Lake, is the birthplace of ancient Yunnan culture. It is also the cultural center of bronze in Yunnan. More than 5000 historical relics and 86 ancient tombs were unearthed here by archaeologists during the period from 1955 to 1996.

Moreover, experts from Switzerland's Zurich gave high praise on the folk houses of Jining after they had made investigations here for 4 times. (Editor:Hyesung)
