“Temple fairs” (庙会) abound during Spring Festival in China. Dìtán Park (地坛公园) has Beijing’s biggest (the 地坛庙会) and we hit it on the last day of the fair. As you’ll see in the photos, it was packed, sprawling, happy, controlled chaos, with just as much noise as colour. The five of us (Jessica and I, 8-month-old Lilia, and my parents) had a blast, but I wouldn’t recommended it for people who easily suffer from sensory overload!
