River Hongbao 2016

River Hongbao is one of the annual event that I will always bring my family. Coinciding with the year of the monkey, the theme this year is Monkey King, the key character in the story Journey to the West, 西游记.

There are many other beautiful lanterns depicting other characters or events in the Journey to the West.

But the zodiac characters this year don’t really look like the animals they are supposed to represent.
