Chinese New Year is like the Super Bowl of holidays in China. You get a big break and there are deals everywhere for travel.

So, according to China Daily, this year’s Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival, kicks off from February 10th to 17th. And let me tell you, the whole country is buzzing with excitement.

Every tourist spot in China is pulling out all the stops for Chinese New Year. Like in Sichuan, they’re doing this awesome buy-one-get-one-free deal at the top-rated state-owned tourist spots. And guess what? It’s on until March, so you’ve got some time to snag that deal.

Over in Jiangsu, they’re doing some cool stuff too. They’ve got museums, galleries, libraries, you name it—all open and ready for action. Plus, they’re throwing in some freebies at UNESCO World Heritage Sites. How sweet is that?

This year, the Chinese New Year holiday is longer than usual. And boy, oh boy, is China ready to party! Ctrip, the online travel platform, says domestic travel bookings have shot up seven times compared to last year. That’s huge!

And get this—international travel bookings have skyrocketed more than 10 times! People are itching to hit the road again, and who can blame them?

The National Immigration Administration says mainland China is gearing up for around 1.8 million trips during Chinese New Year. That’s like three times more than last year—almost like we’re back to the good ol’ days before the whole pandemic mess.

Tourism experts are seeing a double whammy in travel trends this year. There’s a surge in winter sports activities, and everyone’s all about those health retreats.

And if you’re planning a family getaway during the Spring Festival, you’re in luck. There are some awesome destination packages up for grabs. Think France, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, and Kenya. Talk about some serious wanderlust!

So, buckle up, folks. The travel peak is coming, and China is making sure everything’s smooth sailing—literally.
