These expensive apartments lie in Sanya, Hainan Island.

The constructions vary from city to province, and include a range of projects which have been met with a frosty reception.

Other buildings include spiky arts centers, bottle-shaped buildings, a watchtower, a colorful stack of houses are piled on top of one another, and sites which resemble belts and zippers.

The Sydney Opera House and Eiffel Tower can both be found within China’s borders!
