Chinese New Year, or the Spring Festival, is China’s biggest celebration with parties taking place in every Chinese town and city.

The celebrations last for 15 days, each day having significance as Chinese families get together to celebrate and exchange gifts. The streets are lit up with red lanterns, twinkling lights, and elaborate decorations. The famed dragon and lion dances are highlights of the parades held throughout the world.

Hong Kong celebrates with a characteristically-flamboyant array of events and ceremonies. The festivities involve elaborate flower markets, a spectacular night parade, fabulous fireworks, and plenty of other attractions. Macau invites tourists to witness its centuries-old festival with long dragon and lion dances winding through the streets, crowded ornate temples, glowing lanterns, colorful flower decorations, and entertainment in all corners of the city.

Influenced by its large Chinese community, Chinese New Year holds special significance in Singapore. Singapore’s Chinatown is adorned in palatial decorations, evolving into a huge celebration with many special events, live entertainment, and, of course, fantastic food.

The Chinese New Year is celebrated in areas throughout Thailand, too, but the best place to enjoy it is Bangkok’s Chinatown on Yaowarat Road. The streets are filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of food stalls, while crowds shop the markets amidst the constant bang of firecrackers. Bangkok’s Chinatown also has the traditional lion and dragon dances, cultural exhibitions, as well as a beautiful fireworks display.
