Theme park by Three Gorges dam

(January 9, 2006) Chongqing announces plans to draw tourists to the dam area.

Chongqing: Chongqing municipal government is planning to turn some of the surrounding area of the Three Gorges Dam into a theme park, reports Chongqing Daily. The feasibility study of the dam’s tourism potential was conducted by Tsinghua University before the massive project was launched, the newspaper said. The investment in a theme park is estimated at more than 100 million yuan (US$12 million) but the tourism revenue in one year can reach 3 billion yuan (US$361.45 million), according to the study. Aside from natural scenic spots, dam-viewing spots will be built at different angles. And lights will be installed on the dam to create a spectacular night view.
