Westerners could become confused as they walk through the eastern Chinese town of Wuxi. After all, everything looks almost the same...

But walk a little closer to Starbuck or Zara and you'll find what Chinese netizens have labelled a 'street of fakes', according to the South China Morning Post.

According to the SCMP, none of these fake stores are actually occupied. Instead the signs have been designed to create a "shopping atmosphere" to entice prospective property buyers.

Surreal brand names such as SFFCCCKS, ZARE and H&N can all be seen on at the shopping street of Shimao Skyscrapers in east China's Jiangsu province, reports chinanews.com.
