Twin Festival

01 May 2018 in Mojiang

As the absurd in Yunnan knows no limits, Mojiang is since 2005 home to an annual twin festival, held over the May holiday.

Why Mojiang? Because of a statistical blip, Mojiang and particularly Hexi township have a very high rate of twins, but some sceptics say it is all due to the water. Oh well. If you are a twin and have nothing better to do that day, maybe head down to Hexi.

As they say in Mojiang: "Tourism in Mojiang keeps on rising."

Festival held according to western/solar calendar on 1.5.
