Sri Lanka Tourism, along with AIESEC Sri Lanka, hosted “Ayubowan China” on last Saturday (28) at the Light House Galley in Colombo to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The aim of the show was to promote Sri Lanka as a favorable Tourist destination in China.
The Chinese New Year Show was focused on sharing the Chinese culture and tradition among the other nationals, which is a rising global trend at present.
50 Chinese University students from over 20 major cities in China performed a traditional Chinese Dance, a Chinese Opera, a Fan Dance, an instrumental with Pipa and Erhu plus Kung Fu and Tai-Chi routines, to the utmost contentment of the audience. Sri Lanka Navy and the National Youth Services Council also contributed to the event with their excellent performances.
