China’s own version of Paris – complete with Eiffel Tower replica

A while back I blogged about the planned suburb of Songjiang outside of Shanghai, China called Thames Town, which was built to replicate an English town, complete with shops and even a stone bridge. Not to be outdone, the new suburban development of Tianducheng, outside the city of Hangzhou in eastern China has been constructed to look like the city of Paris, complete with its own replica of the Eiffel Tower.

Reuters has posted a nice slideshow of images here.
