Check out China’s very own Venice: VIDEO

therealdeal.comThis city offers the requisite experience for any tourist in Italy: gondola rides, frescoes and historical architecture. The only catch? This Venice is in China.

China built a knockoff of the northern Italian city that covers 4.3 million square feet in the city of Dalian. This fake Venice took four years to construct and cost $8 billion, according to Insider.

The country has a particular penchant for landmark mimicry. China has a replica of the Eiffel Tower, The Great Sphinx of Giza, the White House and the Colosseum. [Insider] — Kathryn Brenzel
