    Nice city.

    Gleaming cars, but the traffic seems to be low if one takes the large buildings are an index to the numbers that live or could live in such a city and hence, the number of cars that should otherwise be in such a city.

    Why are the shops boards/ hoardings in Russian and not Chinese?

    Buildings look quite European. I expected traditional Chinese style architecture.

    I did not know it was one of the Ghost towns of China.

    Your post made me check.

    Even though it is said to be a Ghost town, it still is neat and beautiful.

    The Kangbashi district began as a public-works project in Ordos, a wealthy coal-mining town in Inner Mongolia. The area is filled with office towers, administrative centers, government buildings, museums, theaters and sports fields—not to mention acre on acre of subdivisions overflowing with middle-class duplexes and bungalows. The only problem: the district was originally designed to house, support and entertain 1 million people, yet hardly anyone lives there.

    Though many of the properties in Kangbashi have been sold and a million people were projected to be living in Kangbashi by 2010, the city is still empty.

    Manzhouli (Meaning Manchurian Town literally) is a town bordering Russia and Mongolia, also a rail ramp. And Russian is one of 56 recognized minority groups in China, in thousands, migrating to China a hundred years or so ago. Russian style is quite popular in that area.

    Historically, if I remember correctly, Temjin (Genghis Khan) covenanted nearby with various tribes marking a Mongolian identity coming into being.

    15,609 Russians are there in China as per the 2000 census.

    There are a total as per the 2000 census, there were 1,369,766 inhabitants in the Kanbashi districts.

    Of them:

    Hans are 1,207,971 or 88.19%
    Mongols are 155,845 or 11.38%
    Manchus are 2905 or 0.21%
    Hui are 1861 or 0.14%
    Tibetans are 1023 or o.07%
    Ordos City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Russians are not found worthy of mention.

    Would catering to this small group, if indeed there are Russians, be more important than the others who maybe the majority in the region?

    It seems a bit perplexing unless the Russians there are the richer of all the people and hence find prominence as a target group!
