Ordos – Charles Lanceplaine

I came across a video my friend Charles Lanceplaine produced. I met Charles about 5 months ago on a epic country China trip about 5 months ago “Meet the Stans” . I knew Charles filmed but this is the first video I’ve seen from him. Let just say inspiring.

Built for 1 million people and currently inhabited by just a few thousand.

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.

Ordos is a ghost town located in Inner Mongolia. Seeing the potential of this city in terms of spots we decided to organize a skate trip and be the first ones to skate such a surreal place.
