Lunar New Year Fair in Beijing

This year (2016) New Year Fair in Beijing was visited by a record number of people. I came there on the second day after the New Year. The Fair stunned me by its size and a great variety of things to do and to see.

Decorations were fabulous

  1. Was this at the Temple of Heaven? Those green tile roofs and tall, proud columns remind me of it. I had the best experience there, it was possibly my favorite place in Beijing. Looks like you got some blue sky!! Lucky! Love the pictures ^_^

  2. Thank you! The fair took place at 地坛庙会 (Ditan Park). The architectural style of buildings there can remind of the Temple of Heaven. 🙂
    I am lucky indeed, because during my whole trip to Beijing the weather was sunny and beautiful.
