21. Ghost Cities
Development and infrastructure are ways to strengthen a country and drive progress. Keeping this in mind China has built a lot of new concrete cities over the decades but the problem is there aren’t enough people to inhabit them. There are currently around 50-60 million homes lying vacant around the country.
With policies in place to control China’s population rate, there is a major gap between the timelines of the buildings being constructed and locals who require homes leading to deserted cities. It almost looks like a modern post-apocalyptic ghost city that is slowly rotting away into a wasteland.
