A photo taken on August 18, 2012 shows a couple walking past a statue in Genghis Khan Plaza, in the inner Mongolian city of Ordos. Miss China won the coveted title of Miss World on August 18, triumphing on home soil during a glitzy final held in a mining city on the edge of the Gobi desert. The city has grown rich over the past decade on the back of a coal mining boom that has transformed it from a sandstorm-afflicted backwater into one of the wealthiest places in China. The boom triggered a frenzy of building in the city, but the local government has struggled to fill the vast tower blocks that sprung up, earning it the title of China's biggest ghost town.
