With the rich history and unique Burmese culture and located at the intersection of Zhongli, Pingzheng, and Bade, Longgang was known as the “Charming Golden Triangle”. During the annual National Day, the sea of flags is magnificent, emitting a celebratory atmosphere. This attracts many citizens to attend the flag-raising ceremony and is a major event in Longgang. The National Day can be likened to the second Chinese New Year in Longgang.
