Dragon Boat ( Traditional Chinese龍舟) in Lukang, Changhua

龍舟(或稱龍船)是指中國、越南、日本、琉球的龍形舟,也是中國和琉球端午節競賽活動時使用的人力船隻。龍舟不單是傳統中華文化的一部分,從其引伸發展出來的龍舟競賽現已發展為體育活動。由於龍舟競賽被推廣成為體育項目,因此龍舟同時成為此體育項目的主要用品。

A dragon boat (also dragonboat) is a human-powered watercraft traditionally made, in the Pearl River delta region of southern China - Guangdong Province, of teak wood to various designs and sizes. In other parts of China different woods are used to build these traditional watercraft.It is one of a family of Traditional Paddled Long Boats found throughout Asia, Africa and the Pacific Islands. This model of the location on the map
