2. New Year TV program
If cinema is too far away, you can also spend your Chinese New Year holiday in front of the television. Wonder what is there to watch? Just turn on the television and you will find assorted TV shows, both local and foreign, to keep yourself entertained every day starting from New Year’s Eve.
Be it a friend gathering or a family gathering, there are people you just have to meet at least once a year. Since we are always occupied by works at the other time of the year, Chinese New Year seems to be the perfect (or maybe ONLY) chance to hang out and catch up with our precious friends.

Playing card games during Chinese New Year is a tradition. It is the best activity to kill time when you meet your friends or relatives. BlackJack, In Between, Bacarat etc. There are so many card games that you can play to have fun!
5. Have a family trip
Chinese New Year is all about celebrating with your family. So, seize the holiday and plan a family trip! You don’t even have to go far or for long. A few days’ trip will do. After all, the whole point is just to have quick getaway with your family.
So enjoy your Chinese New Year holidays to the fullest by filling them with these fun activities!
