2016 Beijing Ditan Temple Fair

Beijing, during the Spring Festival is filled with festive atmosphere. Travelling in Beijing at that time can be very relaxing. With the disappearance of immigrants from other parts of China, the streets, buses and subways are all empty with few people. But there is a traditional event which is still crowded with people attracting visitors who come to Beijing to experience the feelings of Chinese New Year.

Beijing Ditan Temple Fair is a traditional activity held every year since 1985. It already has a history of 30 years. Usually it is held from the first day of Chinese New Year and lasts for about 7 days. This year, in 2016, the Ditan Temple Fair will be held from Feb 8 to Feb 12.
