Former nuclear plant opening as tourist attraction

BEIJING - Chinese people will soon have access to a site previously closed to the public: a discarded nuclear plant built into the world's largest artificial cave in Southwest China's Chongqing municipality.

Part of the China 816 Nuclear Military Plant, once a highly confidential military site, will open to the public as a tourist site in October, local tourism officials said.

The plant, at the mountainous Baitao town of Fuling district, was built into the huge cave that covers 104,000 square meters.
