The new Opera house and Theatre in Kangbashi, Ordos. It's been called the Dubai of northern China, showered with wealth, packed with public infrastructure and located near to precious natural resources in a region plagued by water-supply troubles. But the urban center of Ordos City, known as 'Kangbashi New Area', has been mostly deserted for five years. Kangbashi isn't a ghost town due to economic issues, contamination or any other common cause of such abandonment - the government simply can't convince people to move there.
