Last February ("Spring Festival" in China), a friend and I explored the forsaken coastline of SANYA -- the "Hawaii of China".
While there, we found an abandoned resort. Abandoned buildings and "ghost cities" are common throughout China, as developers plan for economic growth (especially factories or refineries) that just doesn't come. The buildings, and sometimes full suburbs, are left empty, howling rib-cages in the winds of neglect...
This resort was used, once, though. It looks like it was mostly used for destination weddings, but maybe it just wasn't "enough" for the nouveau-riche of China's generation of extravagance.

Hope you enjoy the journey to the distant lands of the East...
(And if you'll be in south China or South-East Asia and want to go exploring, PM me.)
