CHINA'S ABANDONED FAKE DISNEYLAND
About 20 miles north of Beijing, you'll find Chenzhuang Village, a quiet farming community where you will find fields of corn, hard working farmers, and a gigantic castle in the middle of it all. What you are looking at are the remains of Wonderland, an aborted rip-off of Disneyland that was touted to become the biggest amusement park in Asia until disagreements between landowners and local governments stalled and eventually killed the project in 1998. Although there was an attempt to restart construction in 2008, it too was aborted. Now, the only thing the park attracts are curious locals and explorers.
