5 Festivals to Take Your Kids to in Asia 

Asia is a continent of many civilizations. Evolving over thousands of years, the region has led to the emergence of some most stunning forms and varieties the world has ever seen. This variety can be seen today in everything from art and culture to religion, heritage and more. In the context of religion, one could say that Asia was the birthplace of numerous major religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Shintoism, etc. And with the religion came the festivals, each with their own symbolism, meaning and traditions. All of these celebrations can be an interesting thing to witness, when you travel with your kids. There are many interesting and wonderful festivals, which make for an interesting experience unto itself. I’ve taken my kids to most of these festivals and recommend that if you are ever in Asia, you go see some of these!
