Beijing builds 'Choc Wall' of China

CHINA plans to reproduce the iconic Great Wall and terracotta warriors.

But neither stones nor clay will be used. The only building material is chocolate.

A Beijing company said the 10-meter-long and 2-meter-high "Choc Wall" will be erected at a chocolate theme park next year.

It may prove as popular as the original as chocolate is gaining a dazzling popularity among Chinese, said Tan Liya, PR manager of the proposed World Chocolate Wonderland.

Located in northern Beijing, the 20,000-square-meter park will open on January 29.

Over 100 tons of chocolate will be used to remake these ancient Chinese wonders, including more than 500 duplicates of the Qin Dynasty (221-206BC) warrior statues.

The theme park will also be a "world tour" of chocolate products and sweets as it plans to invite global chocolate manufacturers for a three-month display.
