Other Homko Olympic Village, Beijing - September 2016

Recommended Posts

In 2008 this village was built close to the national stadium to house hundreds of athletes for the Beijing Olympics. Unfortunately due to the level of bad pollution in the city many of the athletes decided to stay outside the city instead so the project was abandoned. Nothing has been done since with the properties although there was a fair bit of activity at one end of the site. The village consists of several streets of villas which look almost finished from the outside but are completely empty inside. There is also a huge club house with four floors and a swimming pool called the Homko Club. Spent a couple of hours here with @Maniacbefore resorting to more ridiculously cheap beer and food, well worth a visit if you're in Beijing.

5. Some houses were slightly more advanced in their construction but not by much.

I'd love to have a wander around somewhere like this :wub:. Some really grand looking features in some of those buildings like that cracking staircase :)

Cheers guys. Tbh @hamtaggerthe club was the only building that was built properly, the rest were made to look nice but not to last, very cheap construction. Probably why they haven't done anything with them as I guess they were only intended to be used for the Olympics in the first place.

      Family holiday, got a day to myself with the camera
      This place was huge and I know I only covered 40% ish, the site covers a few miles and in 35 degree heat I felt I had done enough in 3 hours, but maybe a return next year to cover the other bits.
      I honestly stripped this down from 70+ plus shots


      There was almost a higher ranking living area once passed the main gate


      the only real graffiti I saw


      old statue knocked down

      Outdoor bath for higher ranking personal

      Another checkpoint ?


      A very hot and long road to the rest of the base

      random buildings


      entrance to an underground area


      more underground entrances

      pitch black

      led to this

      directly beneath this


      Then I found the long tunnel !!!

      which became this, gotta say, I`m not a fan of underground and this was maybe 200m long with a few off shoots to the cliff sides






      up top I found this



      then the long walk back to the car
      Cheers

      Havent posted for what seems an eternity !
      So this was a trip to Bulgaria that 7 of us went on in March.
      Wont go into the history as its out there
      Small copy and paste from wiki
      Buzludzha is a historical peak in the Central Balkan Mountains, Bulgaria and is 1441 metres high (4728 ft). In 1868 it was the place of the final battle between Bulgarian rebels led by Hadji Dimitar and Stefan Karadzha and the Ottoman Empire.
      The Buzludzha Monument on the peak was built by the Bulgarian communist regime to commemorate the events in 1891 when the socialists led by Dimitar Blagoev assembled secretly in the area to form an organised socialist movement with the founding of the Bulgarian Social Democratic Party, a fore-runner of the Bulgarian Communist Party. The Monument was opened in 1981.No longer maintained by the Bulgarian government, it has fallen into disuse.
      The monument was built at a cost of 14 186 000 leva.
      Buzludzha can be reached by two side roads from the Shipka Pass either a 16 km (10 mi) road from Kazanlak or a 12 km (7 mi) road coming north from Gabrovo.
      Now the monument is abandoned and vandalised. As the roof of the building is heavily damaged, the main entrance of the building has been closed for the public. (cough cough)
      So as said 7 of us went, 2 traveled from Glasgow (got knows why Nikon came up here to fly down to Stansted lol) met another 4 in Stansted then our final party member met us in Plovdiv after travelling from Belgium.
      So many laughs had on this trip, ranging from 1 party member going missing at night, after getting bladdered and trying 4x4`s in the pitch black, to absolute nonsense conversations after too much cheap booze.
      For me it was what a trip is all about, fun fun fun and seeing and shooting a pretty cool place.
      We spent 3 days/2 nights at the base of the monument, personally only went up twice, but I know others done it many times at all times of the day and night.
      Anyways, mixed bag, in the order they were shot























      Not happy up here !!! 200ft pitch black climb then 100ft on see-thru ladders, anyone who knows me knows I dont do heights !!
      Pretty chuffed I got to the top tbh, but bob hope I was going out on the ledge !!





      cheers
