Chinese New Year is also known as the Spring Festival, and is an important celebration that lasts two weeks, and often more. This coming year, Chinese New Year falls on Friday February 12th 2021, and it’s the year of the Ox.
I’ve been to China twice so far. The first time was with a friend for three days in Beijing, the second with my husband for three weeks. We travelled into China from Hong Kong and explored Shanghai, Pingyao, Xi’an and Beijing. It’s an absolutely amazing country from its ancient history to its mystical landscape. And I look forward to one day experiencing it again and discovering even more of its culture and beauty. In the meantime do check back on our travel section where I’ll be sharing some of my China travel experiences.
