The mid-autumn festival marks the end of the harvest season when days become shorter and the year winds down. It is the perfect time to get away to the sea. From 1 September to 26 October, celebrate the festival on board World Dream and enjoy a series of Chinese National Treasures, including our first-ever interactive puppet shows, Chinese opera, dragon dances, ancient Chinese fashion parties, and more. Everyone will find an activity to enjoy from the youngest members of the family all the way to the oldest.
Interactive Puppetry Performances
Traditional puppetry performances have been listed on Hong Kong’s first “Intangible Cultural Heritage Inventory” since June 2014 and have a variety of forms, including rod puppet, marionette, glove puppet, and shadow puppet. Puppets, whether they are made from a piece of paper or a few pieces of wood, when handled by a dexterous performer turn into vivid characters and an ancient form of storytelling. On World Dream, puppet shows include glove puppets, marionettes, and more.
There are so many iconic Chinese delights to discover on board, your Mid-Autumn trip will be a re-discovery of everything that is great about China’s history. Do not miss out, book your journey now.
