China creates a knock-off version of Paris – The people love it and its more convincing than you think

What do you do when you love the idea of a Parisian holiday but can’t actually be bothered to visit the city? You go to Tianducheng, a suburb near Hangzhou where China has built itself a mini replica of Paris complete with their own Eiffel Tower!

Buildings here are constructed in the European style and the copycat Eiffel Tower is the centerpiece of this imitation Paris.

Construction of this mini-city had begun in 2007; China also has other replica cities to their credit including Venice.

This is not bad at all as far as replicas go. The site is detailed and while not perfect, it is certainly impressive.

This might be our favorite of all the Chinese copycat products we’ve come across.
