Chikan Old Town located in Kaiping, Guangdong province. The old town was well known for its architecture of "east-meet-west" style. Unlike other tourism-based old towns in China, Chikan local residents protect the town without commercial interference by the outside world. The life and business in the old town remains the same like the way they were built in the 1920s.

One of the features that contributes Chikan's international reputation is the Qilou buildings. With a mixed style of both the west and the oriental, it is viewed as the 5th famous town in China. Built along Tan River, it separates the rural scenes and that of urban apart, and on the urban side, western-style house lines up, creating a spectacle.

A total of 12 European photographers from Italy, Germany, France and Hungary started to travel around Guangdong on May 11 for 8 days to tell its stories and beauty through their cameras.
