This is inside the huge Hangzhou East Railway Station. As with many places in China you feel like being in the future. The station is a high-speed rail hub, which became operational on 1 July 2013. The Hangzhou metropolitan area holds over 22 million people.
This is not Paris. I visited this slightly smaller Eiffel Tower in Tianducheng, China.
Contrary to many news sites, it is not abandoned. Many people live inside the french replica houses. There are shops, restaurants and a lot of game centers for children around the town.
