San Zhi, Taiwan

From series “The Most Impressive Abandoned Cities on the Planet”
Sanzhi is one of the most amazing and unusual ghost towns in the world. It is not exactly an abandoned one in every sense. The thing is that people never lived there. There is one peculiarity about Sanzhi: its main buildings are unusual roundish futuristic houses with huge panoramic windows.

San Zhi, Taiwan A few years ago they were constructed for the sole purpose of selling them to wealthy people. There were plans to build an elite town of closed type where outsiders are forbidden to enter. But the plans never got very far due to a series of accidents causing loss of people’s lives. The project was abandoned and the organizers were quick to suspend the construction work and leave the unfavourable area. And now superstitious local residents fear to enter the territory of the deserted town.

They believe that Sanzhi is home to the souls of the dead. The territory of the ghost town is considered to be the anomalous zone. The houses of original shape and design look more like alien ships and have become home to unquiet souls. That’s why the locals are not going to destroy them so as not anger the ghosts. Sanzhi remains the tourist attraction for many years now. Visitors are sure to take a camera with them hoping to make photos of the ghosts. Next - Yashima
