The Little Paris of China

Sometimes all is not what it seems. The Eiffel Tower overlooking a replica of the Champ de Mars and rows of Parisian townhouses that you can see on the photographs is fake. The replica of French Paris in the suburb of Shanghai is not the Chinese Disneyland; this is a gated community of Tianducheng ("Heavenly City"), which construction started in 2007 and is planned to be finished in 2015.
