China is increasingly famed for it fake products.

They are faking everything from sleek Apple iphone, ipad, Mac to Apple stores.

But nothing match what a group of developers and architects in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong is doing.

They replicate – the exact replica of idyllic village in Austria – in minutiae details that it irked Hallstatt mayor.

“I saw the pictures, details plan of houses, balcony, even gable, windows everything. I was a little bit surprise,” he told British broadcaster ITN.

But the Chinese may be able to copy the houses but not Hallstatt status as UNESCO world heritage site and the uniqueness it has to offer.
