Festival holidays

Who doesn’t like the idea of festivals holidays with all that colour and energy and full on cultural immersion? Festival holidays are a terrific way to meet local people on their terms and to celebrate with them, in an eclectic array of places, from Mongolia to Mali, Burma to Bhutan, you can fly kites, sing music, play drums, go on a pilgrimage and, in many cases, dance. And keep dancing.
