I saw this rooster as well as another and two hens in the grounds of my hotel on holiday in Asia. They are pure white amd tiny, maybe 20cm tall, with short legs and low wings. The closest breed I could think of was a cochin but I wonder if it is a specific breed or mixed breed? I think they are quite cute.
TIA
I will try to get other photos later if I find him again.

Try PJH, here on the forum.
Pam is a breed specialist of some standing and may also be able to give you further info on the small Japanese type bantams in Asia, a breed not found here.
