Have a little self respect, Islamabad. Come up with your own design.
The fact that Blackpool and Vegas have Eiffel towers only reinforces our point about how tacky this is.

Wait! So there already is a Eiffel tower replica there?

At this rate they might as well build 500 of them and create an Eiffel tower town.

I wish he would build just one wonder, but a good one, and unique to Pakistan.

It's just another one of these, but taller!

But whether it should actually be called 'The Eiffel Tower' and be taller than the masterpiece itself is really quite debateable. Eiffel gets no say in this.

Not to mention the Funkturm in Berlin, which also looks similar to the Effel Tower.

There is another one called Falcon City of Wonders (literally shaped like a falcon) in Dubai. It has an Eiffel Tower among other world wonders as skyscrapers, but it has not progressed very far other than the single-family detached villas.
