Ordos is one of the world’s largest ghost towns located in China’s province Inner Mongolia. The goal was to build modern city similar to Dubai in the area which is rich with natural resources however, high prices of properties didn’t attract investors and buyers so town never actually started to live its life. Despite it’s modern buildings the city remains abandoned in the middle of nowhere expecting some better times to host actual residents.
