China Recreates London’s Tower Bridge
Posted on July 24, 2012
London’s Tower Bridge is beautiful, isn’t it?
But wait! What you see here isn’t in London. This is in China!
At about 200 miles northwest of Shanghai, in China’s Jiangsu province, London’s Tower Bridge was added to the replica collection of famous landscapes from around the world.
This collection includes even the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Alexandre III Bridge.
In addition to these famous structures, there’s a Dutch-like town in the area, complete with windmills and Dutch-style houses.
Often called as the “Venice of the East,” Suzhou is like a second home to China’s Venetian tourists.
Even the “English-style coffee” that everyone loves so much is available at the café at the top of the Tower Bridge.
The only thing that the Chinese Tower Bridge is missing is the raising mechanism to let boats pass by. Otherwise, it looks almost identical to the original one.
