Replica of Paris in China becomes ghost town
Reuters' photographer Aly Song captures a knock-off Paris in Tianducheng, China. Developed by Zhejiang Guangsha Co. Ltd., construction in Tianducheng began in 2007
with a scaled replica of the Eiffel Tower standing at 108 metres (354
ft) and Parisian houses. Although designed to accommodate at least ten thousand people, Tianducheng remains sparsely populated and is now
considered a "ghost town", according to local media. (Reuters)
