For instance, a "Chinese Dragon" kite, spanning approximately 60 meters in length is one highlight. It is meticulously crafted from more than a hundred small kites, and it serves not just as an object of admiration but can actually take to the skies.

Wang Li, a staff member at the cultural house, and also an inheritor of palm fiber weaving, has taught many athletes, from various countries and regions, the techniques of his craft.

He appreciates the opportunity that the Asian Games Village has provided by offering artisans the platform. "It enables a wider audience to appreciate our rich Chinese traditional culture and provides us with a place to showcase our skills and talents," he said.
