Four national and four provincial intangible cultural heritages including Desheng drum, Kaikounuo and grass cloth making techniques were performed and displayed, attracting a large number of tourists.
Wanzai has four national intangible cultural heritages as well as seven provincial, city level and 17 county level ones. The county tops other cities and counties in Jiangxi province in terms of the number of national intangible cultural heritages.
