Creeping vines and other flora have enveloped a small, formerly inhabited fishing village on Shengshan Island roughly 40 miles east of Shanghai, which is part of the Shengsi Islands, a chain of islands in China’s Zhejiang province.

The village along the northern bay of Shengshan Island was abandoned after its residents, mostly fishermen, left in the early 1990s. Take a look below to see what remains of this lush, green ghost town.
