Spot the difference: Ten Eiffel Tower replicas around the world
The Eiffel Tower is celebrating 300 million visitors, so it's a good moment to celebrate all the other Eiffel Towers out there in the world, that were inspired by the original. In fact it seems that the old Iron Lady has got around quite a bit and you could find her, or a replica of her in almost every corner of the world from China to Mexico. But how do the imitations compare to the real thing? Well you can check them out in this gallery. You might even recognise one or two.
This 108-metre replica located in TIADUCHENG, CHINA, recently starred in a Vice documentary on the town. Located 200km from Shanghai, the town is a near-perfect clone of the real Paris. But unfortunately for its creators, the fake Paris has not drawn as many Chinese Francophiles as they hoped, and is now a "ghost town" where couples go to get their wedding photos taken.
