Penang International Dragon Boat Festival

The dragon boat was traditionally made in the Pearl River Delta region of China's southern Guangdong Province. It is one of a family of traditional paddled long boats found throughout Asia. Races were then held as part of the annual Duanwu Festival or Duen Ng observance in China. This ancient game is then brought to Penang in the late 90’s and there is now an annual Dragon Boat Race along the coast of the Telok Bahang Beach, in summery Penang. Witness the colourful and culturally designed dragon boats cruising along the Penang coasts. Whether you are an avid water sports lover or just looking to catch a glimpse of the colourful designs of the dragon boats, we invite you to be a part of this legendary festival and don’t miss out on the opportunity to take captivating pictures of the event.
