The 2017 Happy Chinese New Year temple fair was held in Vientiane in Laos from Jan 14 to 15.

The two-day event attracted some 4,000 visitors and about a hundred government officials and representatives from China and Laos attended the opening ceremony.

The fair featured shows of traditional Chinese cuisine and folk culture, a Chinese book and magazine fair and Happy Chinese New Year photo exhibition. Chinese paper-cuts, calligraphy, tea art and Chinese knots were also showcased at the fair.

Many locals said the fair had added more fun to celebrations of Chinese Lunar New Year and helped them understand and experience the festival better.

This is the third time that the fair has been held in Vientiane since it was launched in 2015.
