For travelers visiting China, there are plenty of festivals. Attending these can add more memorable experiences to a trip and make it more enjoyable. It’s always great to research what is happening in a country or city to ensure a trip includes all the best parts of that place. Festivals sometimes have a cultural relevance one can’t find other places. It’s also a great way to immerse into the culture and connect with the people living there.

The annual Water Splashing Festival is a joy to be part of. It’s one of the most important festivals observed by the Dai ethnic people. It includes many light-hearted rituals where participants end up getting splashed, sprayed or doused with water. It’s concentrated on the banks of Lancang River and includes activities such as a dragon boat race and floating lanterns down the river. On the last day, they perform a ritual called Bathing the Buddha, which ends in a water splashing ceremony.

Right after attending that festival, head to Luoyang City for the Luoyang Peony Festival. This festival attracts people from all over. During the festival, the flowers go into full bloom. The gardens are open to the public for curious travelers to explore. The garden is called the Luoyang National Peony Garden and home to more than 1 million peony trees.

Weifang hosts the Weifang International Kite Festival. Thousands of people visit this area for two to three days of kite flying competitions. The kites are all different shapes and sizes.
