Wonderland

ImageWonderland is on the outskirts of Beijing, China. Here is an abandoned castle looking rather tragic as it sits surrounded by fields of corn. Developers promised Wonderland would be the ‘largest amusement park in Asia, but construction work stopped in 1998 after arguments broke out with local government and farmers over property prices. Work began again in 2008 but soon stopped. Apart from the odd photographer looking for a haunting image, the ruins are completely on their own…how sad that Wonderland will always be a ‘would be’ and ‘never was’ instead of a ‘once was wonderful.’
