Shang Simla (尚西姆拉) is a pre-made destination sub-world that was added to The Sims 3 in The Sims 3: World Adventures, along with Champs Les Sims and Al Simhara.

Description[edit | edit source]

Shang Simla is a peaceful community set near a mountainous area of China near the Great Wall. It was founded by a group of monks with an ethos of discipline and Martial Arts. It is full of colorful flora, such as Chinese elms and cherry trees, growing on deep green hills. The town is named after Shang Ri-La and it is based on a mountainous town in Shaanxi or Shanxi, most likely Xi'an, but features the Forbidden City in the middle, which is based on the real Forbidden City in Beijing. This sub-hood features activities and items that compliment Chinese culture and architecture. Shang Simla is the hub for training in the Martial Arts skill introduced in World Adventures. Sims can also explore landmark tombs and hidden tombs throughout this world, there are numerous adventures to be had. There are numerous pre-made families in Shang Simla, although they all unfortunately lack description texts and money. Description text on some objects introduced in World Adventures expand on the lore of Shang Simla, depicting characters such as painter Han Shin.

A trip to Shang Simla costs §1300 for a single Sim and §1000 for each additional Sim, making it the cheapest vacation destination the player's Sims can travel to.
