A Hong Kong businessman is planning to build China’s first Bible-themed amusement park, with construction to start next year if he gets approval from authorities.
Leung Moon-lam, founder of logistics firm China South City, said he and some fellow businessmen were working on the final blueprints for the $659 million tourism project in China’s north-eastern Liaoning province. The exact geographical position is not given. Our illustration shows Shenyang in the province.
Mr Leung, a devout Christian, said the Harmony World park would feature high-tech attractions to tell the stories of Chinese and Western civilisation.
‘I believe we are the first as I have not seen any theme park in China which presents the history of Christianity. It just goes to show how much more open China is today,’ he said.
AFP said he added that other religions, such as Buddhism and Taoism, would also be showcased although this sounds like a little less than a full commitment to equal space. Basically the intention is it will be a Bible based amusement park.
