Fake Paris In China - Is It Anything Like The Original?

China has built its own fake replica of Paris and it's called Tianducheng. This Mini Paris has its own Eiffel Tower, copies of Parisian parks and architecture, everything is recreated to look just like the real Paris. It is one of many China's ghost cities. Initially a luxurious residency for around 10,000 people, it has long remained a deserted ghost city. But things are changing. Parisian photographer Francois Prost went there for his photo project The Paris Syndrome in which he took many photos of Tianducheng, and presented them side-by-side with photos of the real Paris. These photos show us that an entire city can be copied almost identically which makes you wonder, is there anything that cannot be replicated?
