We’ve only just gotten over Christmas… but Chinese new year is HERE!
Chinese New Year, specifically Chunyun, is the greatest annual human migration, which often leaves big cities deserted.

It can be hard to figure out what to do during Chinese New Year (keep an eye on our account for a overview of events). As a working foreigner you might revel in the week off, but be a little stuck for something to do (or eat!).
So we’ve compiled a list of what’s open and what’s not – this Spring Festival. Happy Lunar New Year, have a great break!
