Italia in Miniatura is the Italian historical, architectural and cultural heritage theme park, which has blended fun and learning since 1970. The park displays 273 miniatures of famous Italian and European buildings in scale 1:25 and 1:50. The area is surrounded by Arcobaleno, a monorail. 10,000 plants and 5,000 miniature trees are integrated in the landscape. To fill the water basins 2,500 m3 of water are needed. All the miniatures displayed in the park are made by General Display, the lab where fifteen experts, among them expert craftsmen, work a special type of resin and transform it in beautiful and ready-made miniature monuments.

Wong Tai Sin Temple is one of the most famous shrines in Hong Kong. It is dedicated to Wong Tai Sin, or the Great Immortal Wong. For 100 million Hong Kong dollars (US$13 million), the 90-year-old temple created a underground prayer room. It is decked with gold and marble and equipped with LED lights and motion detectors. Sik Sik Yuen, the Taoist organization that runs the temple charges each visitor a HK$100 entrance fee, considered a high price for a place of worship. Another HK$300 is needed if you want to make a wish to a deity in the Taoist traditional manner.
