Introduction to Houtouwan Village (后头湾村)

During the 1950s Houtouwan was the richest fishing village and by the 1990s the development of the fishing industry had made many villagers wealthy. For convenience the villagers moved out the village one by one and moved to other areas. Over the years the village became empty and was later named “Ghost Village” and the “Abandoned Fish Village”. The empty houses that were left behind became devoured by plants and nature. Houtouwan Village became a hot attraction to visit in 2015 when photos emerged of the village.
