ORDOS – The new skate destination you need to know about
Personally, I've never wanted to buy a plane ticket to Asia until discovering this city created for skateboarding; Ordos, a seemingly deserted Mongolian city. Designed for millions of souls, this city is a real jewel of modern architecture and every corner looks like a skatepark.
From the Vimeo Page:
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.
