Chengong was meant to be a major economic and university center. Within a few years become one of the largest ghost town in Asia, despite the market of Luosiwan, recently moved into the city.
Chenggong is a satellite city located just south of Kunming, along the shores of Dianchi Lake. Construction started in 2003. Skyscrapers, luxury villas, huge residential complexes and even a modern stadium, kindergartens and shopping malls built in the city are rapidly turning into a bleak scenario.
