Come to Longgang for authentic Yunnan Dage Dance
Legend goes that the Dage festival started with Zhuge Liang gathering Yunnanese ethnic minorities to start bonfires, play music, and dance at night in an effort to intimidate enemies with the illusion of a huge army, hence the martial origin of Dage’s namesake (lit. war singing). The tradition has continued. Whenever there is a major festival, all Yunnanese ethnic minorities dress up to play music, sing, and dance together.
In addition to Dage dance, the tours include the beautifully crafted traditional clothing from Yunnan, Myanmar, and Thailand, the refreshing and appetizing DIY Thai green papaya salad, and a visit to the Zhongzhen Village and traditional food stalls in the Zhongzhen Market. Don’t miss out on this exotic experience.
