Chocolate lovers of Beijing unite! Last year it was announced a chocolate wonderland was coming to Beijing early in 2010. The World Chocolate Dream Park is now set to open on January 29 on the Olympic Green.
Eighty tons of Belgium chocolate will be sculptured into an array of items and replicas of famous sites, including the famous Terra Cotta Warriors and the Great Wall. Visitors will have a chance to taste some of the chocolate on display, as well as try their hand at chocolate sculpting.
The park looks like it will make for a fun day for families, as well as chocolate lovers and fans of Chinese kitsch. You can check out the World Chocolate Dream Park website (in Chinese only) here.
