This village you’re seeing in the photos is on Gougi island. This island is one of the 394 ones that form the archipelago of Shengsi islands. The local people left this place abandoned for more than 50 years. Now, nature has done wonders to it. Green dominates everywhere. This pleases the eye and calms our minds and hearts just by looking at it. It’s a shame people abandoned it, but at the same time, one cannot help but feel glad they did so. If there were still people living in this village, there would be no such peace and calmness radiating from this town.
Still, the winter is quite a busy season for this area. Over 100,000 fishermen go there every year to catch fish and then sell it to the market in order to provide for their families. However, even these fishing practices have diminished during the last decades. The beautiful village is once again on the verge of total abandonment.
