What Is Wonderland Today?

Wondering whatever happened to the infamous abandoned Chinese Disneyland? Almost all of the structures were torn down back in May 2013. In its place rose The Badaling Outlets — that’s right, an outlet mall — which opened in 2015.

The one survivor from the never-opened theme park? The castle, which writer/photographer Oliver Smith shot back in 2016. The castle even got a little bit of a paint job. Smith’s site gives great instructions on how to get there and see what remains.
