Xinhua: Tale of two towns by the Yangtze

From Xinhua:

One is the 1,700-year-old Dachang Town in Chongqing Municipality, which will be submerged next year by rising waters from the project.

The other will be a replica – with buildings dismantled and rebuilt on a new site 5 kilometres away and uphill, literally transplanted.

And with regared to two residents of the ancient Dachang city, it’s the best of times for one; and not quite so for the other.
