The re-purposed ghost town as a skateboard park project entitled "Ordos" was directed, edited and filmed by Charles Lanceplaine who writes about the work:
Built for 1 million people and currently inhabited by just a few thousand.
It's been called the Dubai of northern China, showered with wealth, packed with public infrastructure and located near to precious natural resources in a region plagued by water-supply troubles.
While it looks like a blast to board around the empty city during the day, I have a feeling things might get a bit creepy once night sets in. Just saying. Still, a sweet skateboarding video with a surreal setting that has managed to earn major props from all of us here at The Feed.

Ordos is a ghost town located in Inner Mongolia. Seeing the potential of this city in terms of spots we decided to organize a skate trip and be the first ones to skate such a surreal place.
