China is known for all sorts of knockoffs.
But this one will blow your mind.
Welcome back to China Uncensored.
I'm Chris Chappell.
The Eiffel Tower.
The architectural marvel that made this city famous.
I'm talking, of course, about the city of... Hangzhou, China!
Yes, Hangzhou, known in ancient times for its divine pagodas, grand canal, and peerless beauty.
Now, it's also known for its large-scale knockoff of Paris.
Back in 2007, ambitious developers began building what they call the "Tianducheng Resort" on the outskirts of Hangzhou.
And for millions of Chinese citizens who may never get a chance to leave the country, it gives them an opportunity to at least get a glimpse of bon Paris... even if it's a knockoff.
And really, who can tell the difference?
Seriously, do you think you can?
I'm going to show you 20 side-by-side images from French photographer François Prost.
In each slide, one photo was taken in Paris and the other in Tianducheng.
Which one is the real Paris?
Grab a pen and keep track of how many you can correctly guess.
How many did you get right?
And have you been to Tianducheng, or its knockoff version in France?
Leave your comments below.
And I want to give a special thanks to photographer François Prost for sharing his great photos with us.
Follow him out on Instagram: @francoisprost.
Thanks for watching China Uncensored.
Once again, I'm Chris Chappell.
Or are you a knockoff?
