As the fourth largest city in Shandong, Weifang has long been famous for its handicrafts. It is the largest production and distribution area for kites and the Annual Board of Yangjiabu in China. Moreover, Weifang boasts many agricultural products, such as hawthorn, walnut, and juicy peach, which you can buy in the markets. In Weifang, buying a kite as a souvenir is very special as the kites here are unique.

China Highlights tours offer unbeatable value for money, with no forced shopping trips.




The Kite. About 2,300 years ago, the first kite was created in Shandong Province. The first kites were made with bamboo frames and were covered with paper and silk in the Tang Dynasty. Now, people have developed this handicraft, and kites have become lighter and lighter, more exquisite, and more colorful. In China, people consider kites to hold good wishes and beautiful dreams, and are closely related to the lives of the Chinese. Thus, in the kite capital of Weifang, kites are the ideal souvenirs for friends and relatives.
