What do Tokyo, Las Vegas, Hangzhou and Tegucigalpa all have in common?The imposing iron tower is probably the most copied monument in the world, but even SETE, the company that runs the structure, says it is impossible to know exactly how many other versions there are across the world.Some of these faux-Eiffels have become famous in their own right, like the Tokyo tower and the huge replica on the Las Vegas Strip. The Vegas tower is 165 meters tall and sits alongside a replica Arc de Triomphe and other famous Paris structures.This television tower remains a symbol of the Japanese capital, even though the Tokyo Sky Tree tower, which was completed in 2012, is nearly twice as tall.There are other towns named Paris, and some of these have their own towers.
