Venue: Chinatown & Nationwide
Soak up the festive atmosphere of Chinese New Year during the celebrations held in Singapore’s Chinatown. Observed by Singaporeans from all walks of life, the festival begins on the 1st day of the 1st month in the Chinese calendar and ends on the 15th day.
For 3 weeks prior to the start of Chinese New Year, you'll be able to soak in the festive mood throughout the island with celebrations in the form of colorful processions, seasonal markets, riotous lion dances and overlaying it all, the excited chatter and laughter of people meeting up, exchanging mandarin oranges for good luck and feasting on special dishes. At the festive street bazaars you can find over 500 shop stalls, featuring goodies such as waxed duck, barbecued sweet meats, cookies, fresh flowers, Chinese calligraphy prints, opera masks, and traditional New Year decorations.
