street & documentary, Travel Pinas

Ever since Chinese New Year was declared a Philippine public holiday last 2012, the festival has drawn more spectators. Last year, we joined the guided tour hosted by Lawrence Chan not only to visit temples but also to secure our chances of having a place to eat. The restaurants are so packed, you’d have to wait quite long in order to be seated and we don’t want to celebrate the new year with a hungry stomach. There are many attractions in Binondo during Chinese New Year such as the traditional lion and dragon dance and different street performances, just to name a few. So be prepared to pack enough energy to last the day’s celebration.

Here is a look back on last year’s festivities and what to expect again this year.
