about the video

China’s rampant development has put nature in full retreat, but in at least one village the countryside has crept back to reclaim lost ground. Houtowan, once a once a thriving fishing community of sturdy brick homes clinging to the steep hills of the island of Shengshan, is now abandoned with entire houses completely overgrown as if shrink-wrapped in a lush layer of green. But the bush’s re-conquest has given the village a fairy-tale setting and combined with East China Sea vistas, it is now drawing tourists. Watch the video and enjoy the beautiful village frozen in time.
