Chinese New Year, Yangon
Chinese New Year usually coincides with the beginning of February. The large Chinese community in Yangon celebrates the special day with big dragon dances and temple festivals in Yangon China Town. Apart from the dances of the 15m-long dragons, which snake through the streets elegantly thanks to the many-footed crew, there is also dragon acrobatics: Two acrobats in ONE dragon costume perform a dance over a course of high poles to the beating drums until they take the lucky ribbon, tied to one of the poles.
We offer 1-2 day travel programmes for this festival in Yangon as an extension of your trip and would be happy to advise you on the best processions and times.
Please enquire for more information on dates and prices.
