Always wanted to see the world famous temple complex at Angkor Wat, but don’t feel like going all the way to Cambodia? Don’t worry, China has you covered.
Recently, a new tourist attraction opened in the southern city of Nanning which mimics the iconic world heritage site, featuring Angkor Wat-like architecture, carvings, and statues. Reportedly, the design team made trips to the actual Angkor Wat to make sure to get all of the details right.
China is infamous for its reproductions of some of the world’s most famous sites, boasting entire theme parks where you can travel the globe without ever leaving China. Occasionally, these imitations anger the original owner, resulting in Sphinxes being beheaded.
