    The credibility of posts like this are destroyed by altered photos like the one of the hotel in North Korea.

    It isn`t on or near the coast... it`s in the middle of Pyongyang.

    Ryugyong Hotel was the official place western visitors were required to stay in North Korea. It was one of the few places that had reliable electricity, running water, telephones, and such "luxuries," all designed to suggest citizens enjoyed these as well. Why it is sitting in a dune I have no idea.

    I`m guessing liberals had something to do with it. They ruin everything they touch.

    Christ of the Abyss is not "Abandoned". It was put there on purpose and is a scuba diving attraction.

    lol at the photochopped version of Ryugyong Hotel.

    Its not abandoned either, well technically not abandoned anyway. I believe there are actively like 3 employees there, a parking garage, and some kind of radio antennae on top of it.

    On Ryugyong Hotel, that is an image of it while under construction which was halted in 1992 and abandoned AT THAT TIME.

    After 1992 the building stood topped out, but without any windows or interior fittings. In 2008 construction resumed. In 2012, the exterior was reported to be complete. The opening of the hotel was scheduled several times but postponed.







    So it no longer looks like that and is near completion, but it was abandoned at one time.

    They all had republican owners,didn`t pay a living wage and closed when there wasn`t a 25% yearly increase in income. Republicans don`t just ruin what they run, they ruin it for everyone.

    Dadipark might have lasted longer if it looked like that picture :-D

    A surprising amount of parks in this list.

    The third place is next to the city where I live, the pic is so beautiful but you must write correctly the name of the country, It`s Colombia no Columbia... with O no U.
