Shepgsi Island is a small island in the Pacific Ocean, located to the east of the city of Shaghai. On this island, you may find some of the most amazing ghost towns in the world, which have been overgrown by thickets of green vegetation. You may reach the abandoned Hotowap settlement by boat from this island, which is part of a chain of over 400 islands that stretch along the coast of Zhejiang province. Hotowap is a very popular tourist destination due to a series of mesmerizing images of the desolate village that went viral in 2015. Even though it has been known as a spooky ghost town, Hotowap is nevertheless visited by many people.

This was because of the difficulties of delivering goods to this remote island.
