Taiwan

No matter when you visit Taiwan, there is bound to be a festival of some kind. Some of the most unique include Bombing the Dragon, a Hakka Festival in Central Taiwan in which firecrackers are thrown at human dancing dragons, and Grappling with the Ghosts, a festival in Toucheng in which contestants race up oil-slicked bamboo poles to reach platters of food that are thrown on revelers.
