For anyone interested in better understanding China's fine culture, the Yuhua District of Folk Art and Heritage is a must-go place.

As a pioneer that focuses on China's intangible cultural heritage, the Yuhua District of Folk Art and Heritage was established on September 20 this year, covering an area of more than 600 square meters.

The district has more than 300 cultural heritage programs, and over 200 cultural inheritors have set up their booths here, making these invaluable assets more closer to people. 

According to Deng Yunjiao, director of Yuhua District of Folk Art and Heritage, the intangible cultural heritage is not a product or work that reflects cultural traditions, nor an exhibition that is displayed in museums for people to visit. Instead, it should be a lifestyle that people can see and participate in. 

"Only by attracting more and more people to take part in, the charisma of China's intangible cultural heritage can live on forever. Also, young children should get in touch with Chinese traditional fine culture rather than just reading about them in their textbooks." 

Here are some highlights of intangible cultural heritage programs in the Yuhua District of Folk Art and Heritage.
