The Other Chateau Laffitte
An exact replica of Chateau Laffitte, an architecturally significant palace on the outskirts of Paris, sits behind a moat in suburban Beijing. Constructed for $50 million, the Chinese knock off perfectly captures the architecture if not the context. Visitors can stay on the grounds for less than $100 a night, a considerable discount on the price tag for staying in the original.
