Cham Islands Whale Worship Festival

The Whale Worship Festival is one of the biggest festivals for fishing communities on the Cham Islands. In a two-day celebration of good weather and safe journeys, seafarers gather to perform traditional ceremonies, sing, dance, and host boat racing contests. Travelers can watch the parades and ceremonies up close, join local fishermen for a game of tug of war, or cheer for their favorite boat racing teams from the sandy beach.
