FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Huge Titanic replica to open as Chinese tourist destination” – below is their description.
The #Titanic is being brought back from the deep, more than a century after its ill-fated maiden voyage, at a landlocked Chinese theme #park where tourists can soon splash out for a night on a fullscale replica. The project’s main backer was inspired to recreate the world’s most infamous cruise liner by the 1997 box office hit of the same name — once the world’s top-grossing film and wildly popular in #China. It took six years to build — longer than the construction of the original Titanic — plus 23,000 tons of steel, more than a hundred workers and a hefty one billion yuan ($153.5 million) price tag.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
