Cultural Tip – Children’s Day

May 5th is a national holiday to celebrate growth and health of children. Around that day, you can see carp-shaped streamers hoisted, which symbolize strength and courage. Chinese legend has it that carp become dragons when they swim up whitewater rapids.

Another way to get strength is to enjoy fresh fish at the following 2 restaurants near the sea!
