Things to Do

Temple fairs are held on the Lantern Festival. The principal temple fair is at the Old City God Temple. Lanterns dangling on the shops and residences near the City God Temple outline a picturesque scene. There are also the performances of “literary lanterns” and “military lanterns”. Another temple fair is held in the Fengjing Ancient Town, where a lot of local handicrafts are sold. Beware of pickpockets on the crowded temples fairs. On the fair grounds do hold off from tempting foods, because overeating may bring diarrhea. There are also good bargain shopping; think twice before you buy.
