Festivals

So much in Asia depends on the calendar. In February in Beijing, more than 20 million people all set off fireworks to celebrate Chinese New Year. In Nagaland in India, tribes from all over the region meet to compete, dance, and celebrate. In Thailand, spectators look on as celebrants perform bizarre rituals at the Nine Emperor Gods Festival.

Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance

September - October

In an effort to end a plague that ravished the village of Tai Hang in the 19th century, locals performed a fire dragon dance, which miraculously did the job. To this day, the ritual is still performed - but now on a much grander scale. The dance now sees some 300 performers, 72,000 incense sticks and a 220-foot dragon.
