Would you believe that this is located in Southwest of China?
UPDATE: APRIL 30, 2016 - A campus is hailed as "coming from fairytale" for its impressive European-style architecture. The campus of Sichuan Southwest College of Civil Aviation, which is located in Chengdu, capital of Southwest China's Sichuan province, costs 1 billion yuan (US$154.5 million).
Red bricks, arch gates, pristine pavement and a fairytale-esque design, what more could you want from an educational environment? Oh, that's right, segways!
school guards don't walk -- they use segways.
Sichuan Southwest Vocational College of Civil Aviation is a full-time higher vocational college approved by the People's Government of Sichuan Province, and directly managed by the Sichuan Department of Education.
The college is located in Jintang University Town of Chengdu city, covers an area of 500 mu, with a total investment of 1 billion yuan, and strives to create a Classic British school.
The college training center covers an area of 71.5 mu, total investment of 200 million yuan, has following six major functions: students practical training, regional aviation colleges focus on training, new recruits training, on-the-job employees training, social experience and tourist attractions. All kinds of training facilities worth a total of more than sixty (60) Millions yuan (or equivalent to US$9 Million).
A statute is erected in the campus with a mini-Big Ben in the background.
There is yet more luxury inside the buildings. With high ceilings, chandeliers, French windows, elegant furnishings and grand pianos, the school aims to make students feel like they're studying in a 5-star palace, rather than a filthy dorm room.
An aviation school is nothing without a real airplane in the campus.
The interior of a building. And look at their school uniform! They took aviation study too seriously, they are even look like professional flight attendants.
On the college's website, it refers to itself as “The most beautiful university in China."
If it is not the most beautiful, it is certainly the best publicized. Every few months, the school releases pictures of its elite student body. To train to be a flight hostess or host at the college, you need to be good looking and at least 163cm tall if you're a woman and 174cm if you are a man. Meanwhile, males can neither look too "feminine," nor too "tough" and intimidating -- even when they are dispatching onboard security threats.
And in spite of very expensive tuitions fees, board and lodging expenses, more Chinese parents are working so hard to get an application for their children and trying all their best to make their kids be accepted to this prestigious University.
I'm telling you that Chinese parents take their children's educational and bright future MORE SERIOUSLY.
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 5, 2016
