Xinfengjiang National Forest Park

City Intro
Heyuan, originally called Feicheng (which means the city in water), is situated in the northeast of Guangdong, upstream of the Dongjiang River with the Beijing-Kowloon Railway running across it. The region is fertile and rich in resources and with its undulating green mountains, forests and blue waters. Folk Heyuan is rich in Hakka customs and festivals. The Zhongxin Lantern Festival is held on the 9th day of the first month of the lunar calendar at Zhongxin Town in Lianping county and visitors from all over Guangdong travel there to see this amazing burst of colour and entertainment. The lanterns are the main feature of the festival and works of art in their own right exhibiting skills in drawing, paper-cutting and calligraphy with some of them even having Hakka poetry inscribed on them. But there is more to the festival than just the lanterns and participants can enjoy singing, dancing and acrobatic performances.
