“China landscape in Swedish Eyes” Photo Exhibition
Beijing, Zhangjiajie, Lijiang and Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region
The exhibition is jointly held by Green Post, a web multi-media and Kamera & Bild Magazine.
China is a multifaceted country with large variety of landscape and places with many different kinds of cultures meeting. Tourism has a great future in China both for Chinese and foreigners. There is a lot to see here! Here we show you the photos from two different tours.
Web newspaper Green Post editor Xuefei Chen Axelsson went to Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in western China in Aug. 24-31 this year together with 14 journalists from 13 countries along the silk road countries to see Xinjiang’s development in tourism industry. The project goes along with the Belt and Road Initiative proposed by President Xi Jinping. She visited Urumqi, Changji, Burqin, Altay and Kanas where there are rich tourism resources. The landscape includes Gobi, forests, Mountains and lakes. The Yadan landscape was formed by wind but the name was given by Swedish explorer Sven Hedin. The trip is worthwhile and the purpose was to wake some interest for both industries and tourists.
Magazine Kamera & Bild arranges various photo trips to various parts of the world regularly with travel bureau Zoom. In November this year, a group of photo enthusiasts led by Swedish famous landscape photographer Claes Grundsten and photo journalist Johan Wessel. The group visited Beijing and Great Wall, the famous Tiger Leaping Gorge, National Park Zhangjiajie in Hunan Province in Central China and the beautiful longji in River Li in Guilin city, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in South China.
Through our pictures, together we like to show you some Chinese rich culture and beautiful natural landscape. We hope to give you some deeper impression about China.
