Ghost city in China

ghost city 2

Chenggong District of Kunming City, China, five years ago it was just a farmland but now it became a big city covering a total area of 1.6 million square kilometers, it is a representative ghost town in China and also reportedly one of the largest ghost towns in Asia, there are luxury villas, residential areas, shopping mall, stadium and even subway in the district, but the only thing it lacks for is human. Chenggong is almost completely empty, the occupancy rate is less than 10%, it is very difficult to wait for a taxi, which really requires great patience and luck, although there is a high vacancy rate, the houses are still very expensive and the new buildings are still under construction. Ghost towns are abnormal results caused by the house surging price, local governments rely on land finance, property speculations become an important way to make money, then the so-called ghost towns are created, it is also a microcosm of the real estate bubble in China.

The only good of living there is ” you never need to worry about traffic jam.”
