THE EX­OTIC SET­TINGS AND VI­BRANT COL­ORS OF IN­DIA IN PIC­TURES.

Like China, In­dia is a huge and di­verse coun­try. Our pho­tog­ra­pher Du Lianyi, who was there re­cently, was not only drawn by the tourist sites but also the daily lives of lo­cal peo­ple.

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - FRONT PAGE -

In­dia is a fas­ci­nat­ing coun­try, aptly de­scribed by its tourism slo­gan “In­cred­i­ble In­dia”. It’s a place where mod­ern and an­cient cul­tures co­ex­ist, lux­ury and poverty col­lide, and ef­fi­ciency and care­less­ness meet. It is home to breath­tak­ing world her­itage, unique nat­u­ral scener­ies as well as sur­pris­ing and in­ter­est­ing folk cus­toms. To ex­pe­ri­ence In­dia, you have to touch it with your feet, see it with your eyes and feel it with your heart.

PHO­TOS BY DU LIANYI / CHINA DAILY

A group of cu­ri­ous girls, wait­ing to en­ter the Taj Ma­hal, are at­tracted by the cam­era lens aimed at them.

Visi­tors are re­quired to en­ter the Taj Ma­hal bare­foot or have their shoes cov­ered as a sign of re­spect for the mon­u­ment.

Two women sort through piles of fab­ric that fill the side­walk on the out­skirts of Arga.

A woman wear­ing a col­or­ful and tra­di­tional sari stands out in the crowd.

A young boy con­cen­trates as he makes flower gar­lands to sell on the streets of New Delhi.

The Gate­way of In­dia, which is packed with peo­ple and ped­dlers, is a mon­u­ment in Mum­bai.
