When the summer approaches with its unique fresh aroma, it is also the time to embrace Dragon Boat Festival.
As one of the most significant holidays celebrated in China, the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival is also the most history-honored one. The festival originates from a moving story, in memory of a patriotic poet----Chu Yuan.

The Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated in various ways, esp. featuring dragon boats races and tzungtzu (bamboo leaves filled with cooked rice) eating.
This year Dragon Boat Festival will be celebrated in May 28, which is also the best time to travel in China. Here are the itineraries recommended by TourOChina. Wish you all a happy and refreshing holiday!
