We’re not in Paris: This farmer is working the land next to a replica of the Eiffel Tower near Hangzhou, China. Tianducheng, an urban development built from 2007 to 2015, features a 354-foot (108-meter) re-creation of the French icon as well as 12 square miles of Parisian architecture and landscaping. The community can house approximately 10,000 people, but its estimated population is closer to 2,000.
