Chinese want to build a copy of Old Quebec in China

Hey, they’ve already rebuilt Paris, London, etc. over there, so why not

Most tourists are content to take home a tiny bit of Quebec City — a souvenir from the Petit-Champlain shops or a selfie taken in front of the Chateau Frontenac. But some in China may want not a piece, but an entire district.

That’s the assumption on which a consortium of Chinese real estate investors, the JC Group, is staking a $20-billion bet.

They want to recreate the historical district of Old Quebec, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in a new township in Qidong, a satellite city across the Yangtse River from Shanghai.
