views: 2001

Ken’s inspiration for his China journey started when he saw a single image of a place called XiaPu.  He planned for a 7-day China trip but eventually, it became an 18-day trip.

Ken first visited Guilin, which is known for its majestic mountains, picturesque fishing village, and the Li River.  After 9 days he travelled to XiaPu, a place many consider as the most charming fishing village in China. XiaPu is a haven for photographers with its mudflats scenery and charming countryside setting, enhanced by sunrises and sunsets, which create a wonderful effect of lights and shadows.
