The Shengsi Archipelago, which belongs to China, consists of 394 islands. However, only 18 of them are inhabited, while the rest of the islands are actively invaded by local plants.

One of the fishing villages has become extremely popular among tourists due to empty houses that are overgrown with green ivy. Some houses can be detected only owing to their still visible windows.

At first thought, one can say that these buildings are just decorations and people have never lived there. However, this quite a dystopian scenery is real – the fast-growing plant silently takes possession of the village, turning it into a desolate beauty.
