Kite Flying

Kites, which are considered as the earliest flying object of mankind, originated in China over 2,000 years ago.

Legend has it that in the Spring and Autumn Period, Lu Ban, a great building master, made a bird-shaped wooden kite that could fly in the air. After that, paper was used to make kites, which were therefore called 芒鈧損aper kites芒鈧? As time went by, kite flying became popular among Chinese.

Beijing is one of the best-known hot spots for kite flying. Many remote areas have also joined in the fun recently. In 1989, the International Kite Federation was officially established, with its headquarters in Weifang, Shandong Province.
