Some Hui people do not look like Han Chinese, I wonder if they a little middle east or central asian mixture thousand year ago. They do however speak mostly Han dialects.

There is no doubt Zhuang is related to people in Thailand and Laos, both apperance and language.

Russians with Chinese citizenship are too little in number.

Macanese, people with Portuguese, Chinese, other Asians and African ancestries, are not regarded as a distinct ethnic group in China. The Macanese is as diversely mixed as the many people in Latin America.

Koreans in NE China originated from North Korea before PRC was established in 1949.

Most Japanese have left China after world war 2, they settled in large numbers in NE China due to the special relation between Manchukuo and Japan. A few remained but with their Japanese identity is usually not revealed.

Some look a bit mixed, but still mostly Chinese. It's not like they look like Uzbeks.

I think the Dai, who still live in Yunnan, don't look that different to the Han or the Zhuang.

There is a village in Mohe county, Heilongjiang which has a community of mixed Chinese-Russians. It's quite interesting.

I heard a lot of ethnic Koreans in China were from south Korea originally. However, those in Yanbian were from the north for the most part.
