It is an important merit-making event for the ethnic Chinese. Special food, flowers and candles are offered to ancestors on altars. Other offerings are made to ‘feed the ghosts without relatives’ that are said to have been released from hell for the month.

The whole market is colorfully decorated and features interesting activities from about noon until midnight, including a traditional merit-making ceremony, lion dances, magic shows, live concerts, cabaret shows and many more stage shows. Expect to see plenty of local food stands at both venues; it’s a chance to sample Chinese-influenced local food at very friendly prices.
