Ghost City[edit]

The Fengdu Ghost City is a tourist attraction modelled after Diyu, the concept of hell in Chinese mythology and Buddhism. It was built over 1,800 years ago. The ghost city will become an island once the Three Gorges Dam project is completed. Specifically, part of the Fengdu Ghost City will be submerged, but scenery above the "Door of Hell" will remain.

Transportation[edit]

Fengdu has one Yangtze crossing, the Fengdu Yangtze River Bridge.
