This year's temple fair at Beijing's Temple of Earth is not just about traditional culture. It also offers a new opportunity for single people to meet their perfect partner during Spring Festival. Our reporter Ji Yi went to find out if the historic surroundings had any effect on helping love blossom, at this extra special blind date.
Activities like massaging a stranger make the young visitors more relaxed in this special blind date.
Games are arranged to break the ice between single men and women. But when it comes to talking about what they're looking, everyone has their own ideas.
One visitor said "If he had a house and car, it would be better, but they are not essential to finding true love."
One visitor said "I think the most important thing that makes two people happy is not a house or a car, it's who you are. Whether you have a lot of money or not, you can enjoy happiness if you want."
Interestingly, not all the attendees are young people. Some of the older visitors came to take part, but some were only interested in the welfare of their young relatives.
One visitor said "My niece is very tall, that's a problem. And she's a kindergarten teacher, so she doesn't have many chances to meet people. I'm thinking of someone who is a Beijinger and owns a house."
The blind date event is expected to receive more than ten thousand visitors during the 7-day holiday.
