    Al Jazeera’s Melissa Chan reports from the wealthy coal-mining town of Ordos in Inner Mongolia, originally designed to house one million people, yet hardly anyone lives here.

    Looking like perfect California subdivisions and with fully-furnished homes, thre’s no denying a certain spookiness about these ghost cities, which have been built all over China.
