Photographer's Note

This is the ancient iconical waterfront of Chikan village, close to Kaiping. The architecture is from the Qing dynasty.
Behind the waterfront houses, one of the Diaolou (towers) can be seen. Most towers have a strange mixture of Chinese and Western or Arabic architecture. The new architectural ideas were brought back by oversees Chinese returning home early 20th century.
