Surreal Images Of Ghost Village Of Houtouwan, China Slowly Being Taken Over By Nature

Houses are slowly being taken over by nature in the abandoned village of Houtouwan on Shengshan Island in China. The remote village, once home to more than 2,000 fishermen, was deserted in the early 1990s as residents moved in order to escape problems with food delivery and education. The area is now a tourist attraction as visitors look to see what happens when nature is allowed to run free, entire houses completely overgrown as if vacuum-sealed in a lush layer of green.
