The Dragon Boat Water Parade of Tai O

Every year during the Dragon Boat Festival, three fishermen's associations in the tranquil fishing village of Tai O come together to organise the ritualistic Dragon Boat Water Parade, also known as the Deities Parade.

Part of China's third national list of intangible cultural heritage devised in 2011, the parade provides an opportunity to experience Hong Kong's traditional culture up close and to squeeze in a visit to an old stilt house community at the same time.
