Water Splashing Festival, also known as the “Festival for Bathing Budda” is the equivalent of New Year celebration to the Dai ethnic minority. This celebration includes light-hearted religious rituals that end in merrymaking where everyone ends up getting splashed with water, a symbol of religious purity and goodwill. Every year this Water Festival is celebrated at Crowne Plaza Beijing Sun Palace in April (same time as Xishuangbanna) or May (when April is too cold) where colourful Yunnan costumes and décor creates the celebratory atmosphere. Cultural dances will be staged and authentic Yunnan cuisines will be specially prepared.

Ticket: RMB228 net per person
4:00pm to 9:30pm daily from 29 May to 31 May 2015
