What better way to get in the middle of the Lunar New Year atmosphere than in China’s capital city. Even better, visit the biggest CNY party at Ditan Park, which not only goes beyond its size but also offers visitors a look back into the past with its annual Ditan Park Temple Fair. One of the most awaited highlight of the fair is the acting out of an imperial ceremony from the Qing Dynasty where the lead, the “emperor”, leads more than 100 performers to the Temple of the Earth to show allegiance to worship the gods.
