We all know the Chinese love foreign architecture, whether it be U.S. capitals or English villages. The latest photos and videos to hit the net show Tiandu, China’s own version of Paris which was started in 2007. Vimeo user Caspar Stracke offers us an eerie glimpse of what the local media calls a ghost town.
According to Sky News, the town was developed by Zhejiang Guangsha Co Ltd, and includes imitations of famous Paris tourist sites including the Champ de Mars, Arc de Triomphe, fountain found in the Palace of Versailles, and of course, it’s very own Eiffel Tower.
Reuters photographer Aly Song has also created a fantastic photo series showing the lives of those who actually live in Tiandu, see it on Business Insider.
