The 2020 Zhongliao Intangible Cultural Heritage Festival kicked off at Zhongliao village in Sanya on July 25, featuring traditional dances of the Li ethnic group, folk customs events, distinctive local delicacies, and handicrafts.

The event aims to strengthen the integration of intangible cultural heritages, leisure, and tourism industries by promoting characteristic tourism destinations and popular tourism routes.

Dachaiwu, which is also known as the chopping wood dance of the Li ethnic group, and Danzhou Folk Songs, which was selected as a Hainan Intangible Cultural Heritage, were performed on stage at Zhongliao village. A fashion show of modern clothing of the Li ethnic group was also held at the village.


In addition, visitors were able to have a taste of traditional Hainan delicacies, such as Lingshui Sour Rice Noodles and Hainan Rice Noodles, as well as enjoy an exhibition of the intangible cultural heritages of the Li brocades and coconut carving.

Since 2020, Zhongliao village has started to offer tourists intangible cultural heritages experiences, such as the time-honored way of printing and hand-made chopsticks, allowing visitors to experience the joy of making things by hand while learning about intangible cultural heritages.

The village is seeking to combine its unique intangible heritage resources with various forms of intangible heritage research and tourism activities to boost rural tourism and all-for-one tourism development.
