OLYMPIC HOMKO GHOST TOWN – BEIJING – GRADE B+

Located in the green leafy area of Olympic Park in northwest Beijing, this beautiful ghost village was originally built to house the athletes and some of the staff for the Olympic Games back in 2008.

The huge club house in the middle of the complex features a large empty swimming pool and a myriad of dark karaoke rooms.

Unfortunately, half way through the construction, enough athletes said that the air quality in central Beijing was so poor, that they would stay outside the city. As a result, this place has been left to rot.

House with a Balcony

Twice I have fallen through the poorly constructed concrete floors into the flooded basements beneath. This is just such a perfect slice of eeriness urbexers should make this site a priority.

There are a couple of security guards on the main gate, but people always manage to hop over the fence at the back for a quick peek. Be careful entering the houses though.

Club from a Distance

   Beetlejuice's Fireplace

Every villa seems to have its own style and ambience. Each has its own fireplace. This one looks like the one in Beetlejuice.

The clubhouse has quite a large swimming pool topped with a dome. The day I went a kitten could be heard mewing loudly, probably stuck in one of the pipes somewhere.

The streets are long overgrown and weeds and small trees break through the cheap concrete. All that is missing is a tumbleweed.

Here is the naked lady of the park, with the Olympic Park in the background. She looks a bit lonely, maybe you should pay her a visit.

This is an eerie place to visit, so make sure you go on a sunny day. Seeing that there is so much to see here, and also because it is a semi-Olympic site, it gets a firm B+ from Burbex.
