Ordos is a ghost town located near Inner Mongolia in China. It was built for one million people, but only a few thousand live there. The town is very wealthy, has good public infrastructure and is situated close to precious natural resources, but is part of a region with water shortages.
The short video is worth watching just to see how incredible those spots look to skate, and it doesn’t look like the skateboarders even got hassled. Some friends somehow saw the potential of this place to skate, and organised a trip, and were apparently the first people ever to skate the town. We found this quite inspiring. Just see something you want to do and make it happen.
