Chinese New Year is considered a major holiday for the Chinese and has had influence on the new year celebrations of its geographic neighbors, as well as cultures with whom the Chinese have had extensive interaction. These include Koreans (Seollal), and Bhutanese (Losar), Mongolians (Tsagaan Sar), Vietnamese , and the Japanese before 1873 (Oshogatsu).</p>

    I don't think I will be there for the first few days, I don't like all of the fireworks, too much noise. I might go to Thailand and hang out on the beach then go to Indonesia...
