Today there is no need to travel all the way to Paris, France to see the most iconic landmark in the world. Hundreds of replicas have been created, and the one depictured is considered one of the most elaborate and accutrate. It is located near Hangzhou, China, in the gated community Tianducheng. Its residents can easily say the Eiffel Tower is located practically in their backyard!

12 square miles of Parisian style architecture, fountains, and landscaping. It opened in 2007, and can accommodate more than 10,000 residents are also located here. China built this huge city with replica landmarks, but now it is mostly an abandoned ghost town. At the moment, farmland still exists around The Eiffel Tower in Hangzhou. China is hoping people will move into the city someday as the population continues to grow.
