Esteban Toro is a travel photographer originally from Colombia who loves Chinese landscapes and culture. He visited the country five times from 2017 to 2019.

In this video, Toro recalls his beautiful memories of Guangxi, south China. He ate, lived and fished with local fishermen on the banks of the Lijiang River. He found that people who speak different languages can still communicate with each other through music, photography and art. Toro also visited the magical Huangluo Yao Village, where he experienced a culture that he had never witnessed before.

Toro hopes that the Western world can understand more about the real China, and he also looks forward to returning to the country.
