We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Luodian Dragon Boat

Luodian dragon boat  (罗店龙船) races derived from the Dragon Boat Han folk of Dragon Boat Festival. But in view of Shanghai Dragon Boat Festival is at the rainy season, and the value of the southern summer harvest is a busy season; and the Luodian people favor the dragon boat race a lot, so they would not be satisfied with only one day dragon boat events.

Therefore, since the Ming Dynasty, Luodian dragon boat would last for several days thus become a folk culture event. Luodian dragon boat carries out every year in the traditional seasons year after year which has lasted for more than 400 years so far.


















Luodian traditional dragon boat carries in a specific pattern, shipbuilding and boaters are in the form of "inherited from his father's" heritage. When the activity would be held, they will release information on "vertical drill" (also known as "vertical pole" which is located in the town center). The activity days would be confirmed according to the number of vessels involved in the activities and "pick up the egg" (drawing of lots) to determine turns to do the order hosts. And the host is called as the "first port", with command.

Dragon boat show begins in the afternoon every day and lasts for two to three hours continuously. There are many "clippers" and "small boating" trailing dragon boat. Meanwhile, the land is full of rich and colorful performances. The folk performances can reach up to a dozen, so the annual dragon boat activity always "drawing hundreds of miles of the people, turned out it was grand one."


















Luodian dragon boat activity is held by private voluntary organizations, the economic support comes from the "big family responsible for a big part, small family responsible for small portions." Shipbuilding and boating pays all labor no nothing, but the workers and craftsmen participate by key competing, and proud of it. People also devote boundless enthusiasm for this, or prepare the ceremony reward for those who contribute, or tea to treat people.

Luodian dragon boat featured in many ways. The purely "performance-based" transition to form a cultural event. Modeling, meta-cream making, the spectacular performances, a custom mode self also has original content. Many features of Luodian dragon boat not only embodies profound both geographical and cultural heritage, but also accumulates folk art development.

Due to historical reasons, Luodian dragon boat activities once stopped. With the loss of shipbuilding and ship Carpenter, the relevant skills on the verge of extinction, the emphasis on supporting Luo Zhen party committee and government, Luodian dragon boat is in a timely manner to protect and develop, and Luodian dragon boat festival has held for fourth times and achieved broad social impact. Luodian dragon boat, the long tradition of prestigious event, has brought out a new luster in the "Golden Luodian".
