Dragon Boat Festival

9 06 2016

Dragon Boat Festival is one of the most well-known festivals in China. The most popular legend of this festival includes commemorating a famous poet named Qu Yuan for drowning himself in the river. People remember his legacy by eating rice dumplings (zongzi, the steamed glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo leaves) and holding dragon boat races.

Instead of riding the river, my friend and I spent the day cruising on the new e-bike and catching everyday life for the residents of ShaoXing on film.
