These Abandoned Places Look Surreal

Normally, when we leave a building, we can safely assume that we’ll come back to visit again at some point. And if not us, then somebody else probably will. However, there are some buildings which people left, only to never return again. Here are some abandoned places that turned into haunting masterpieces over time.

Yes, this is actually a real town and not something out of a weird dream you had last night. Gouqi Island was once a modest fishing village situated along the Yangtze River. However, since it was abandoned many years ago, nature decided to have some fun. The moss and ivy that now cover all the buildings give this town a truly surreal appearance.
