Tianducheng is a town in the suburbs of Hangzhou, China, whose construction began around 2007. The city center is an abandoned copy of Paris, that even features an Eiffel Tower 300 ft (107 mt) high, 1/3 of the original.
Tianducheng is basically a touristic experiment gone wrong and right now it’s nothing more than a ghost town, as the most part of the buildings are abandoned and the ornamental gardens built around the tower are now fields cultivated by the few citizens still in town.
One of the most exciting things that you can see nowadays are just married couples occasionally shooting a wedding photoshoot on the abandoned streets of the city center.
This is not the first time that a lookalike location is built in China, as in Hangzhou you can also admire the Venetian water town, in Beijing there are copies of French chateau and at the recently opened New Century Global Center in Chengdu you can walk with your feet on the sand of a fake oceanic beach.
What do you think about it? Would you like to take a trip to Tianducheng or are you just annoyed by this Chinese clone of Paris?
