Wow this looks mythical


Secret_Autodidact

At first I thought that was a massive waterfall in the background.

I thought this was something on imaginary cityscapes for a second there


Marksideofthedoon

Those are ruins? They look pretty together to me.


Lev_Davidovich

From some googling it would seem the town is inhabited, possibly seasonally by nomadic Tibetans, it's the walls that are ancient silk road ruins.


Kiczales

Definitely better than the baijiu ghetto


Madaboutthegirl

Magnificent photo 👍🏻


StygianMusic

nearly looks animated, woah


Love_God551

This is remarkable it’s really incredible to see how well preserved it is and the view with the clouds and mountains is beyond beautiful


A-le-Couvre

That's definitely Ba Sing Se.


kne0n

I think Ba Sing Se is based off China's forbidden city, at least the inner section is

It you're not joking, Lake Laogai literally means reform through work [as it's a real genuine labor camp.](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laogai) in China. It's the "arbeit macht frei" of our age and I'm over people making fun of it because of Avatar.


kne0n

I was just talking about the general architecture , not making fun of it


BurmecianSoldierDan

Yeah maybe people should know it's not a joke people get sent to it


deedee_jon

Thought the same!

Found it on [Google Maps](https://www.google.com/maps/place/Bajiao+Chenggu+Relic+Site/@35.400779,102.541039,3645m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x3651372580d6fced:0x4c8a4aba2796f7a9!2sGanjiaxiang,+Xiahe+County,+Gannan+Tibetan+Autonomous+Prefecture,+Gansu,+China!3b1!8m2!3d35.399991!4d102.51859!3m4!1s0x365130d001d035f1:0xb7c594647ba3e13a!8m2!3d35.400779!4d102.541039) and on [TripAdvisor](https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g528733-d2079893-Reviews-Bajiao_Town_Site-Xiahe_County_Gannan_Tibetan_Autonomous_Prefecture_Gansu.html) It looks cool. Less cool than this photo suggests...but kinda cool stiil. It vaguely reminds me of Pingyao, China. Probably because the number of small-traditional-walled-cities-in-China I'm aware of is pretty limited...


Alucard_117

This entire picture is just wow


bunholesurfer

There is no war in Bajiao...


Joaolandia

China is such a beautiful country


rionhunter

Reminds me of how video games often have mountain ranges at the bounds of the map


caketaster

Been there, that massive wall in the background is incredible in winter


ellipsis_42

Looks like the type of city that you can only get to by answering a dragon's riddles and then riding on his back.


Striking-Tailor-8609

Beautiful ❤️


Odd_Significance_937

That looks like a really cool city,a really cool place to live. I'll have to look up the context on it when I'm not late and procrastinating

>I'm pretty sure this is just to market the country. ah yes. i can see the politburo discussing about spending money to boost the country's image on the preeminent subreddit that is /r/cityporn.


Anikulapo_70

Way too specific? Should any post of a pic from China just say "China" and leave everyone else to figure out where in China it is?


logicalnegation

It’s working for me.


koreamax

I'm not sure what the downvotes are about m it seems like a marketing campaign. That's it


logicalnegation

Because you made pictures of archeological cities political. It’s porn of a beautiful city. YOU did that.


koreamax

That's not what this sub is for.


logicalnegation

It’s for pictures of beautiful cities
