Local Customs

FOR AN ENJOYABLE STAY

During its long history of more than 2,200 years, the ancient and remote city of Fuzhou developed a profound folk culture and customs rich in local color and flavor, which have melted into the daily life of ordinary people. Spring Festival allows visitors an opportunity to closely watch the local customs.
For example, on the first day of the lunar new year, when adults give children their new year's money, they often also give them an orange or ju, which sounds the same as favorable, or ji, in Fuzhou dialect.
Also on that day, Fuzhou people have xianmian (literally meaning thread noodle) for their breakfast. Eating the food as the first meal of the new year bodes well for longevity and happiness.
