What's Hot: Festivals in Asia this Summer

At Enchanting Travels, we know all too well that local religious and cultural festivals bring a destination to life. Here’s our round-up of special festivals within Asia this summer.



VIETNAM: The Ba Chua Xu Temple festival


What is it? A festival to celebrate the Ba Chua Xu (meaning “Country Lady” or “Lady of the Realm”) Temple that was constructed in 1820 to honor a 6th century statue of a lady, found in a nearby forest.

Today, many local people believe this lady is a goddess who makes wishes come true and so pilgrims visit and offer incense and asking for her blessing by touching the statue.

Many rites and processions are performed, including a ritual washing of the statue.

Where is it? An Giang Province, at the foot of Sam Mountain, Vietnam
When is it? Annually, at the end of the 4th Lunar month. This year it is from 18 – 22 May 2017
How long for? Three days



BHUTAN: Nimalung Tshechu


What is it? “The Tsechu” are religious community gatherings (or festivals) that happen in each“dzongkhag” (district) across Bhutan and where Bhutanese people meet annually to celebrate their local culture – and perform or enjoy dance, music and food traditions. People also put on their finest traditional dress and you can witness wonderful colours

This is a unique and rare local festival that allows you to experience the rural culture as you enjoy a series of mask dances that stimulate the doctrine of Lord Buddha and are said to promote good luck and remove all the sins of the year.
