The large-scale cultural live broadcast program launched by CCTV Chinese International Channel is called "The Legend of China Festival - Dragon Boat Festival" and this year they came to Sanya. It took 8 minuets and 27 seconds to show the festive atmosphere of Sanya.
Sanya’s Dragon Boat Festival is very special, particularly the Dragon Boat Race, which has become an essential sporting event for the Dragon Boat Festival. Today's Dragon Boat is no longer just a traditional folk activity, it is an international project that integrates culture and competition.
During this year's Sanya 2019 Dragon Boat Invitational Tournament, authorized by the People's Government of Tianya District of Sanya City, Sanya OFIA Company put together a dragon boat team comprised of 22 foreigners from different countries including the United States, Canada and Russia. They presented plenty of water sports entertainment for everyone.
