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.
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.
