In Zhengzhou, the streets are lined with trees of gold!
Or at least one street, in front of a Bank of Communications, where 6 trees have been coated with a lustrous layer of “tuhao gold.”
Obviously, the golden trees have drawn many amused looks from passersby who joke that they are now certainly too poor to live on that street. “So that’s what the Bank of Communications has been doing with my money!” others mused.
Zhengzhou isn’t the only city to go to extraordinary methods to improve on nature. Last December, with a cold winter coming, Shenyang officials decided to turn back the clock, livening things up with some fake foliage.
