Happy Chinese New Year 2016

Chinese New Year, also called Spring Festival, is lunar based and for that reason changes date every year. This year it will start on 8 February and officially ends on 27 February. But as New Year it is "only" celebrated for 10 days. That means business in China in for 10 days in hibernate mode as it is 10 days holiday. So the Chinese will be travelling, within China and abroad. What will bring a lot of Chinese tourists to Thailand. This year will be the year of the Monkey, a social and self-assured character. But also selfish and jealous. As there are Chinese communities in almost all cities in Thailand, there will be Chinese New Year celebrations in many places in Thailand. Go and enjoy Chinese New Year celebrations!
