actually,aside from Thames town,there is italian and german town.

That's why I said insecure newly rich without much cultural education due to either the cultural revolution or due to their peasant background and therefore the lack of almost any education at all.

BTW what is an oriental style house? Arabic, Indian, Persian, Chinese?

5000 years history and China ends up with a cheap copy.

I would be more excited to see a real project instead of the deceptive show-off.
However,buildings in these photos are "real".
More horrible...

One shld be really worried by this.....destroying the very few wetlands left in the world isn't a gud thing.

Hope u've made the statement out of concern, which i doubt u did, and not as a gud thing for tht particular region.

Sure I know them and I love them. I have a friend who buys a lot of old houses in Shanghai and protects them. He even bought the old Jing'an Temple and will rebuild it in Shanghai or in Tongli. Me, I am not that rich.
