    I had to see it for myself. I fueled up my jet and flew over to take some photos.

    Of course I used Google Earth to make sure it was really there, and to get an exact location for the GPS auto-pilot before I burned all that time and fuel to fly all the way over there That video looked a bit fake, so I was skeptical.

    You can see the 3-4 year construction progress on Google Earth. Located at 24 16.506'N, 113 28.994'E


    First pass at about 20000 ft

    then 4000 ft

    final pass at 1000 ft, to get a clear shot below the cloud

    I was surprised the roofs are a different color. Maybe there is another resort similar, but I was low on fuel and could not linger looking for it.

    The color of the roof tops does not surprise me, as pristine as the Chinese try to make things appear to potential tourists the fact is they constantly have to deploy whole brigades of cleaning crews and automated cleaning equipment throughout the city of Guangdong and other cities to combat pollution fallout from their industrialization of the regions
