Travellers taking Macau tours over the coming months will have plenty to remember their trip by as the destination plays host to a number of unusual events.
One of the highlights will be the Feast of the Drunken Dragon, a tradition based on an old Buddhist tale that will be held on May 2nd.
Local fishermen participate in the festival by performing a ‘drunken dance’ with wooden dragon heads and tails as part of a procession that leads from Senado Square towards Macau’s inner harbour.
The 20th Macau Arts Festival will take place between May 2nd and 30th this year and will feature orchestral concerts, exhibitions, dance shows, Chinese opera and more than 70 performances by artists from Europe and the UK.
Bringing the month of May to a close on the 28th will be the Macau International Dragon Boat Festival, which will see local and foreign teams competing against one another on the Nam Van lake.
Macau is one of the two special administrative regions of China, the other being Hong Kong.
Hong Kong – Part mystical Chinese city, part 21st Century metropolis, Hong Kong combines temples and skyscrapers.
