    The Chinese New Year | General Information

    Since Thailand is home to a large ethnic-Chinese population, Chinese New Year is one of the biggest festivals in the country. It takes place around January or February, depending on the lunar calendar. The best place to experience Chinese New Year in Thailand is Bangkok’s Chinatown (Yaowarat), particularly at the northern edge of the area, such as Charoen Krung Street and Wat Mangkon Kamalawat. Also in the southern island of Phuket which has a long tradition of Chinese traders passing through the area.

    During the festival, every nook and cranny of Yaowarat comes to life with festivities. You’ll see exploding firecrackers, traditional dragon and lion dances, parades, and lanterns. If you love Chinese food, you can also enjoy plenty of Chinese banquets. It’s definitely one of the most exhilarating celebrations in Bangkok.

    If you’re not in Bangkok around the Chinese New Year, you can enjoy the celebrations elsewhere in Thailand. Phuket, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, and Nakhon Sawan usually have joyful celebrations as well. If you’re not sure where to find the celebrations, head to the areas’ Chinese temples.
