Year built: 2012
Nicknamed by the Chinese as "The Village of Knockoffs," Huaxi is also the wealthiest village in China. The village is perhaps best known for having constructed a super-tower that is 328-meters-tall that features a one-ton solid gold statue of an ox. The village of 2,000 is really a multi-billion dollar conglomerate with interests in steel, shipping, tobacco, and textiles rather than a village of the common sense. Another luxury of the village is construction of various replicas around the village. Because the villagers have no time to travel, they have constructed replicas of the Great Wall of China, Sydney Opera-house, Arc de Triomphe, etc.
