I'm sure this is on a lot grander scale than the one in Winnipeg, Manitoba called Festival Du Voyageur in February each year.

This interesting. I have heard of it since I was born, never been that place though. Wish I could come back to China and see how this amazing festival would be like.

When I was reading about The Cayman Islands, it said something about a Turtle Farm. A few years ago, I went on a Carnival Cruise and went to a Turtle Farm, though I'm not sure it's the same one as on the Cayman Islands.

Caymen island looked exotic. Something I'd want to see for real. This winter I'd probably hit Goa in India. I have heard a lot about snorkelling but don't have courage to try it.  It's going to be a carnival time in the month end. Just referring netgeo, mygola.com and http://www.joguru.com to get more info on it.

I don't realize if some of the oriental countries have those kind of amazing festivals. Thank you for the recommendation! I also found out some interesting articles here aswell www.jakpost.travel  :)

I can't believe you would continue to promote the Cayman Turtle Farm after they were just caught hiding evidence of severe animal mistreatment!  And I notice you do not mention that the CTF slaughters this endangered species and sells them as meat.  Nice standards, NatGeo.

Nat Geo - Kindly research your tourist spot recommendations: Cayman Turtle Farm is under investigation for gross negligence and cruelty to their hundreds of sea turtles before their miserable lives end in slaughter. This practice should not be supported by a magazine that is usually known for conservation. More info: http://stopseaturtlefarm.org/

Ms. Michaels & Mr. Budiansky,  Thank you fot that deeply saddening bit of info  I was surfing the tube one night & noticed a prodram titled "Wicked Tuna" on NatGeo.  I didn't even check it out, with the fish being overfished then sold for millions.  First impressions do make lasting impressions.
