Bulang Minority people have many things in common with Dai people, the same religion, using same written language, and even spend the same festivals. Bulang people spend their New Year and Closing-door & Opening-door festival at the same time as Dai do, only the celebration activities are different since they stay mountainously. Bulang don't have Dragon Boat Race, don't fire bamboo rockets, don't splashing water on New Year... San Gan Bi Mai is the new year of Bulang people, same as Dai people's New Year, it falls in April, too, but Bulang spend this festival in more original and religious way, rogation and offering to Buddha and monks make the main content of the festival.
