Tomb Sweeping Festival (NEW)

Event Details

  • Date:

Tomb sweeping festival is a three-day celebration honouring one’s ancestors, and each area has its own methods of paying respect. Today, Shanghai and Beyond takes us to the countryside village of Han Shan, about 2 hours from Shanghai, to learn about the festival’s history and observe the locals’ time-honoured traditions. We’ll tour a countryside village and visit a memorial hall, the local cemetery, and a market for tomb sweeping accessories. We will enjoy farmer-style cuisine and hear personal stories about the holiday while learning
about ancestral worship and beliefs.
