China is huge if you haven't noticed. And they've got some massive buildings too. But that's also created a ton of abandoned cities and massive ruins. Most of them, are also brand new and never had people living in them. Here are some of the deserted Chinese cities, and just one look and you're sure Neil Blomkamp wants to film something there.
