Holi Festival - Exclusive My Adventure Travel Tour
India comes to life in their Spring with the Holi Festival, the festival of colours - which put simply involves thousands of people covering themselves with powder and paint. It is celebrated in March after the full moon. Kick off the celebrations on the eve of Holi with a bonfire of dancing and music. The official day involves letting your inner child out letting the good times roll- think waterbomb fights meets paintball. Except now different to your childhood memories, you're allowed to target the neighbours���anything goes!
Harbin Ice Festival - Exclusive My Adventure Travel Tour
Ice, ice baby! This is the world's largest ice and snow sculpture festival, held in north-east China in Harbin annually. Amazing rainbow lights bring these exquisite and extremely talented sculptures to life. Some of the creations are as long as two football fields! Plus, you can do more than capture a cool Instagram; many of the sculptures double as a slide for people to enjoy. They often resemble real life monuments such as the Great Wall of China or a giant bottle of liquor- there's something aesthetically admirable for all. The festival also brings the adventure tourism scene to life in Harbin, with activities like skiing, dog sledding and ice mini golf on offer.
Diwali Festival - Exclusive My Adventure Travel Tour
Light it up at Diwali - the world renowned celebration in India. The 'Festival of Lights' is one of the biggest events on the Hindu calendar, signifying the victory of light over darkness, or good over evil. Celebrations can last up to five days.
