CHINESE FIRM BUILDING FULL-SIZE TITANIC REPLICA FOR TOURISTS

Beijing, – Construction has begun on the world’s first full-size replica of the Titanic in China.

Future visitors to the city of Daying in south-west China will be able to climb aboard the 145-million-dollar, 300-metre luxury cruise ship in a reservoir on the Qijiang River and experience a simulated collision with an iceberg and subsequent sinking, the official China Daily reported.

Other attractions under construction include a dining hall, theatre, first-class cabins, economy cabins and swimming pool, according to Wuchang Shipbuilding Industry Company executives speaking with the Chengdu-based West China City Daily.

It is not known when the new ship will open, but tickets for a one-night, economy-class berth start at about 435 dollars, China Daily said.
