My experience at the Chinese cultural center began in the supermarket called Ranch Market. The inside of the store basically looked like an Albertson's or Basha's but was filled with strange and interesting foods from China. Unlike a normal supermarket this market had more fresh foods and meat. Even though the store smelled like a petsmart it was a neat experience to see all sorts of new foods and the ways they are sold.
The garden consists of small architecture and signs that explain them. There are a few sculptures but the garden is on the small side. There was also an abundance of small ponds and one large pond filled with koi. The trip through the garden though only took about 10 minutes and I did not feel like I had learned anything about the chinese culture from the garden.
The Oriental Factory Direct was filled with Chinese novelties, plants, collectibles, and weapons. All the products were imported from China and many of the items were religous or promised good luck. The items were priced fairly and some items were extremely cheap. The experience would be best if you are with friends. Without friends the Cultural Center becomes very bland and boring. It was great that the parking and visit was free though. I recommend trying new foods in the Ranch market, and walk through the gardens for a short time.
