Despite of numerous problems made by weather and rains, China doesn’t stop surprise us. For this time it prepared for tourists two new attractive and amazing projects: creating a new resort in Spanish style and “underwater town”.

Soon, in China will be re-established Spanish town Cadaqués, a well-known and favorite resort of Salvador Dali.

Salvador Dali was a frequent visitor in Cadaqués. In 1916 in the Catalan city he became acquainted with modernist art, and later painted “Cadaqués from the mountain”, “Cadaqués, seen from behind” and so on.

Construction of the resort is planned for September-October 2010. Chinese version of Cadaqués appears in the port city of Xiamen.

The representatives of the Chinese construction company have already visited Cadaqués and signed necessary documents. Before the start of construction the Chinese experts have made in Cadaqués all necessary measurements, and photographed the most typical architectural objects, only to recreate them in Xiamen. According to the authors of the project, Chinese Cadaqués will be built for those Chinese who wish to visit the Spanish city on the Costa Brava, but can’t do this in connection with high Europe prices. In total, the city can accommodate about 15,000 tourists. There will be opened several art galleries, which will exhibit paintings by Spanish artists.

Another one touristic showplace will be “underwater city” in Changsha. This autumn it’s planned to start construction of the “underwater city”, which connects one of the local stations with the subway tunnel under the River Hsiang. Construction expects to be completed in 4-5 years.

The original purpose of this construction was to facilitate the move to the city across a river. Later the project area of 100 thousand square meters of overgrown and many additional features – in an underwater space, in addition to transport infrastructure is planned to build a shopping area, amusement park, hotels and other facilities.

The city under the water will be warm in winter and cool in summer, which is especially valuable for the Changsha city, known for its unusual heat.
