So in this new map there are several good points of interest WG have added and needless to say most of them are based on real life locations 

 Pagoda of Fogong Temple (at base A)

Iron Pagoda(at base B)

Pavilion of Prince Teng (at base C)

(Honestly, putting a Taijitu in front of this building is strange, since that place have nothing to do with Taoism )

Great wall (on the small patch of land on I10)

At the very end of this makeshift Great Wall, there is a small fortress made using the textures of the wall

Even though this looks more like a sand castle  than a real Chinese fort, but then again may be the map designer is having fun with all the textures ingame.

WG employees some very talented 3D modelers.   Their New Marseille Port is pretty amazing and inspired by a lot of the actual architecture of the City.

There is a square rigger ship in the distance. Is it fictional or does it have a name? Real?

dunno about Marseille.  But the square rigger they plopped into the Hamburg Port is based on an actual ship.   WG talks about it in their intro video to that particular patch.

The locations has nothing to do with anything naval. Surely, if Chinese fan service is the goal, there are better icons?

I was hoping for Château d'If (I am a Monte Christo fan)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Château_d'If

but that is already in game actually, and the port also featured that in a distance

Ya the one in Hamburg is real.  Was just wondering bout the one in Marseilles. It is not very detailed and way back in distance.
