Ordos: The Ghost City of Mongolia

10/01/2010

Well, not exactly. Ordos is a city in Mongolia which the local government had constructed, rather fast, over the course of 5 years. Built in order to raise the countries GDP, the city only has a population density of 17.8 people per square Km. Compared to New York with 157.91 and San Francisco with 6,688.4, the city mide as well be completely abandoned. Check out the video for more info, its pretty interesting.
