The annual Dragon Boat Festival is one of the city’s most exhilarating cultural traditions. This year, The Peninsula Hong Kong invites guests to experience a rare perspective of this event’s iconic roots with a visit to Tai O, otherwise known as "the Venice of Hong Kong". Hong Kong’s last remaining fishing village, Tai O plays host to a colourful boat race during the festival that sees dragon boat teams racing to each of the village's temples to pray for peace and pacify the wandering water ghosts; a historically symbolic ritual enacted by residents of the community. Afterwards, participants will be taken on a delicious tour sampling the town’s celebrated specialities, from oversized fish balls to Chiu Chow dumplings, delectable Chinese doughnuts and moreish glutinous rice dumplings stuffed with sweet peanut paste.
