Called the Dubai of northern China, Ordos is a vast ghost town located in Inner Mongolia.
Showered with wealth, packed with public infrastructure, and located near to precious natural resources in a region plagued by water-supply troubles, Ordos was originally designed to house, support, and entertain around 1 million people but instead is only home to a few thousand.
Seeing the potential of this city in terms of spots, these inventive skaters decided to organize a trip and be the first ones to skate such a surreal place.
