Wuniu village in Chongqing's Yubei district is only 19 kilometers from Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport. In the past, poor agricultural infrastructure and a lack of job opportunities forced young people to leave the village to look for work in other parts of the country.
Eighty percent of Wuniu's land was left unused and it became a typical "empty" village.
