China has reportedly started building Titanic’s Replica. This is not the first time China is doing anything such.
This is the latest tourism project by the communist power, which is termed to be most ambitious yet.
The People’s Daily reported that construction of the 880-foot replica luxury liner began Wednesday, Nov. 30.
This ship will be a fixed tourist attraction once it is completed. It is not made for the open water. The ship will feature ballroom, theatre, swimming pool, and premium first class guestrooms.
The project is funded by Sichuan seven star energy Investment group. The company has invested $145 million US dollar in the project.
A completion date has not been revealed yet.
The Titanic is renowned to many, as it struck an iceberg and sank on its maiden Voyage in 1912 which killed 1500 passengers and crew.
