Book a hostel in Edinburgh to celebrate the Mela festival
Those looking to celebrate some Asian culture could do so in Scotland next month.

Booking a cheap hostel in Edinburgh could be a good plan ready for the Mela festival from August 6th to the 8th.

There will be live music at the event from the Aberdeen International Youth Festival band Ceol Mor on the Saturdyay (August 7th), as well as India's leading jam rock band, according to the event's website, Something Relevent, who are performing on the same day.

Food connoisseurs will have a variety of eats and treats to whet their appetites, as well as beverages. Individuals in need of a rest from exploring the extravaganza could indulge in a cup of chai tea, or a glass of wine.

Reserving an Edinburgh hostel in the city centre could be a good place to be based away from the main event, which is at Leith Links.

There is a children's workshop and a variety of activities to do based on different countries.

Youngsters can take part in paper making or traditional fabric creating in the Pakistan section, while henna hand painting will also be on offer.

In the Nepal area there will be the opportunity for kite making, Buddhist Thanka colouring and leaf painting with real Peepal leaves from the Himalayas.

Those on a budget might like to book a cheap hostel in Edinburgh to stay, while cash-strapped individuals could be pleased to note that advance tickets for adults are available for just £2, while children under-12 can go in free of charge.
