Always a popular quick trip from Hong Kong, Singapore is a great option to head to over Chinese New Year. With its huge Chinese population, along with the influence of various other cultures, the celebrations in Singapore are a real mix of old and new traditions.
Amongst the festivities, the River Hong Bao Carnival, the Chingay Parade and other events and parades happening in Chinatown are all popular. Aside from enjoying the celebrations, there’s plenty more to do, see and eat in Singapore! From visiting the Singapore Botanical Gardens, to eating out at a hawker centre (or a Michelin-starred restaurant!), finding one of the city’s many hidden speakeasies, and checking out the Gardens by the Bay, you’re sure to have a busy few days.
