China’s massive ghost cities have been on my radar ever since this SBS Dateline report was published back in April 2011. Since then, it looks like China hasn’t really stopped building at all and the country now has massive cities that are all eerily empty. Hardly a single soul anywhere. The problem stems deep and it seems China is on the cusp of the most catastrophic housing boom ever seen in history if they keep on this track. It could literally tear China apart from the inside out.

Watch the CBS 60 Minutes report inside.

Also, this is what it’s like to skate in one of China’s abandoned cities.
