  •   torrauden @sannahkvist Stan är väldigt stor, större än många svenska städer av Sigtuna-karaktär. Vissa delar verkar delvis bebodda medan andra är helt övergivna. 1d
  •   torrauden @sannahkvist Det är rätt lol/hemskt att Kina-Sigtuna, trots sin tomhet, ändå upplevs mer levande än motsvarande förlagor. Utanför »Statt« satt ett femtiotal människor och käkade kräftor en helt vanlig tisdag. 1d
  •   torrauden @sannahkvist Om du har vägarna förbi Shanghai; åk! Praktiskt att ta sig dit, Meilan ligger på ändstation av en nybyggd tunnelbanelinje. 1d

  •   yvonne_d Look at them all curious and excited 1d
  •   torrauden @yvonne_d Yep! The general mood was exceptionally great considering how depressing the town felt. 1d
  •   yvonne_d So are the businesses still operational? Any residents? Interesting town. I've never heard of it to be honest, not even from my friend who's living there. 1d
  •   yvonne_d In shanghai I mean. 1d
  •   torrauden @yvonne_d Seems to be a couple of running businesses, although the ones at main square are Nike outlets :| 1d
  •   torrauden @yvonne_d Regarding residents, hard to say, but it's in general very empty and at least a couple of buildings are left totally depleted. 1d

torrauden Meilan is a Chinese interpretation of »Mälaren« 1d

» LOG IN to write comment.

torrauden Lake Meilan outside Shanghai was the result of a government project called »One City, Nine Towns Initiative«, simulating architecture of cosy European towns. Swedish Sigtuna by Mälaren lake turned out to be their proudest location. The project never took off. Several years has passed since its completion and it is now left deserted. A few businesses are still around, bringing sparks of life to a Nordic ghost town in the far east. 1d
  •   yvonne_d I heard of an imitation Disneyland as well somewhere in China but can't remember exactly which province. 1d
  •   torrauden @yvonne_d Oh wow, I'll investigate in this matter. 1d
