A dragon boat named "Panda village", with a length of 5.5 meters, was established at a safari park in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, for giant pandas and visitors to celebrate the upcoming Duanwu, or Dragon Boat Festival.
Zongzi, or glutinous rice dumplings, a traditional Chinese food to celebrate Duanwu, are also provided for pandas at the Guangzhou Chimelong Safari Park, which is home to the world's only triplet set of giant pandas.
The Dragon Boat Festival falls on the fifth day of the fifth month of Chinese lunar calendar. This year, the festival falls on a Thursday.
A giant panda festival will also be held from July 1 to Aug 27 at the safari park, which has more than 10 giant pandas.
