The Chinese New Year period is a great time to travel, whether you’re just making use of the days off from work, or trying to avoid your relatives (hey, we’ve all been there). The growing regional trend has set hotels on a CNY frenzy, with many offering generous deals for getaways and hotel or resort stays.
With 2015’s super long Chinese New Year weekend, things just got a lot sweeter than all the sweet treats and and pineapple tarts we love. If you haven’t already decided on the destination, much less arranged for transport and accommodation, don’t worry because it’s not too late. To simplify your search, TripZilla has compiled some of the best 2015 Chinese New Year travel deals for you.
This year’s Chinese New Year falls on February 19 (Thursday), with February 20 (Friday) being a public holiday as well. With that, you can have up to three nights in a fancy resort sipping cocktails, before heading home on February 22 (Sunday), in time for work the next morning.
