If you’re a huge fan of the Titanic movie, like all of us here at Atchuup, your day will instantly brighten up after reading this.
We are all familiar about that tragic story of the Titanic — the ‘ship of dreams’ that sank after hitting an iceberg in the North Atlantic ocean in 1912.
Now an Australian billionaire Clive Palmer has now set out on a £300 million mission to rebuild a fully functioning replica.
His grand plan is to launch an aesthetically identical Titanic II. But this time it will be much equipped with the modern safety and navigational features.
Like the original Titanic that sank over 100 years ago, the incredible replica will be 270-meter-long, 53-meter-high, and it will offer first, second, and third-class tickets.
Check out the photos to see what it is going to look like:

WHERE DO YOU GET A TICKET?
The Titanic II is set to sail in 2018 from China to Dubai, instead of Southhampton to New York. There will be 2,435 tickets available and 900 crew members. And of course, it comes with increased lifeboat capacity.
When the original RMS Titanic sank in 1912 following a collision with an iceberg, more than 1,500 people perished.
