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.   With an intimate and unique knowledge of Asian culture, Remote Lands knows the importance of experiencing culture the right way.

Souk Okaz Festival

Souk Okaz Festival

Souk Okaz was one of three major open-air fairs that served as commercial, social and cultural hubs in the pre-Islamic era. The Souk Okaz Festival of today is a modern rendition that takes place in Taif during summer. It combines various arts, literature, and serves as an occasion to honor writers and intellectuals from inside and outside Saudi Arabia.  The Crown Prince Camel Festival, one of the world’s largest and most important camel races, is a highlight of the festival.
