The Hakka Tung Blossom Festival is under way in Changhua County, central Taiwan,
serving up traditional music and delicacies of the Hakka people.
The Hakka people are a linguistic group of Han Chinese who speak the Hakka dialect. About a quarter of Taiwan’s population is part Hakka.
The Hakka Affairs Council is the sponsor of the festival which will last through May 14, while the white tung flowers are in bloom.
Participants can embark on a bicycle tour of the local Hakka villages and try their hand at making traditional Hakka rice cakes. [SOURCE]
