Now could be the ideal time to book a China tour.
The country is currently celebrating the Spring Festival after it ushered in the Year of the Dragon on Chinese New Year, which this time fell on January 23rd.
China has many stunning and unique attractions such as the Forbidden City and the Great Wall that will be unforgettable at any time of the year, but the People’s Daily Online is reporting that those tourists who are currently in the country are having the time of their lives.
Authorities in China are keen to put on a show for travellers during the festival and, as a result, the ancient cultural traditions of the Chinese people come to the fore.
Pazhani Raja, a student from India who experienced the Lunar New Year celebrations, said he was so impressed by the spirit of the natives that he had to honour the Spring Festival.
He commented: “The dinner on New Year’s Eve is so sumptuous that I had been waiting for the treat all year.”
“The essence of the dinner gathering is reunion, which is deep in the Chinese culture. After working hard for a year, the family dinner makes everyone feel soulful happiness.”
People’s Daily Online reports that the Chinese hospitality is not the only joy to be seen at this time of year.
The news agency said that visitors were flocking to the Ice Festival in Harbin, the Bund in Shanghai, the panda-breeding base in Sichuan and many other often overlooked villages in the country in search of the perfect new year memories.
China is so vast it offers something for everyone. The country’s meteorological authority said that the south of the country will continue to see snow, while the northern provinces will experience warm sunny weather for the next week.
