The Chinese booth was specially set up during the festival for the Chinese students to introduce Chinese calligraphy, tea and how to make Chinese knots. A large number of local visitors were attracted to the booth—some enjoying Chinese calligraphy, some trying out Chinese tea while inquiring how to make Chinese tea and others learning to make Chinese knots.
