The foundations of a new major tourist attraction have been laid of an ambitious $1 billion project. The new Titanic is located far inland - on the Qijiang River, Sichuan. The builders are planning to honor the blockbuster film 'Titanic' ➚ rather than the original doomed maiden voyage of 1912. Some of the key rooms and cabins will be faithfully recreated but not all of them. It is due to be open for visitors by the end of 2017.
