    Default The Chinese will steal anything!



    In the outskirts of Shanghai stands a fake Eiffel Tower overlooking a replica of the Champ de Mars and rows of Parisian townhouses. This is not Disneyland in China, this is the gated community of Tianducheng, built in 2007 by real estate develepors Zhejiang Guangsha Co. Ltd.

    and more...

    All that effort to build it exactly, and be enjoyed by the exactly dozen or so people in that picture. It'll eventually end up a ghost town like the other Chinese rip off towns and amusement parks have.

    True. At least there it has a sense of being in a glamorous place, much like the original. A place where it will be appreciated. The one in China is placed in a dump and looks inferior.

    Apparently, the Chinese will cheapen anything. How can you top the original anyway? Answer: You can't.



    At least whatever casino that is in Vegas made a true reproduction, albeit a little shorter.

    They create these towns, but then do not provide any reason for anyone to move there. Maybe they have a long term plan, but from reading the article it seems they don't.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
