The 4th largest city in China, Tianjin, has an unusual attraction known as the Porcelain House or China House. An affluent collector of Chinese vases supposedly spent over $300 million to convert a nondescript building into mosaic of ancient ceramic pieces from damaged antiques, which opened to the public in 2007.
