Experience a Malaysian festival where ghosts come back from the dead to visit relatives


The Ghost Festival is a Taoist celebration that happens every year in Asian countries. It occurs on the 15th night of the seventh month of the Chinese calendar. This year it took place on Sept. 5.

The belief is that the gates of hell open up and the ghosts of the departed return to visit their relatives. Many shows are put on during the festival, and in some places the first rows are left empty and reserved for the ghosts. Fourteen days after the festival, people float water lanterns as a way of directing the ghosts back to hell.
