A Different Chinese New Year

Tired of going through the same routine for every Chinese New Tear? Tired of having to meet relatives and answer their endless questions? Fret no more as we show you a list of alternatives you can consider this year instead.

1. Travel Overseas by Plane

Since you are so used to the way CNY is celebrated in your country, why not take this chance to explore how CNY is celebrated elsewhere?

Travel to Penang, Malaysia, to experience their way of celebrating CNY if you have not. With an estimated composition of 41.5% Chinese, the highest in Malaysia, CNY here is likely to be a huge festival, providing a unique experience.

Bangkok, Thailand, is also a viable spot. A fascinating fact: Bangkok has the second largest Chinatown in the world (wonder who has the largest...). Hang around Yaowarat Road, Chinatown main street to watch how the Thais celebrate CNY.

Depending on your luck, USS may or may not be crowded on Chinese New Year. But since its a public holiday and there may be a CNY theme going on, why not go down to take a look? Based on its official website, USS is open during CNY. Head over to WeekendGoWhere to purchase USS tickets at a lower price! Or you can simply download the app(App Store or Google Play)

5. Just stay at home and chill

When is the next time you are going to be able to find time just for yourself? Pamper yourself this holiday by just staying at home and catching up on the episodes of Korean drama or anime you missed.

No matter what is your decision, it is important to have an enjoyable holiday. We wish you a Happy Chinese New Year!!!
