The ‘Year Of The Rabbit’ begins on January 22nd, with the Chinese New Year celebrations lasting until the Lantern Festival on February 5th.

Chinese nationals will be travelling more freely from all over the country and indeed the world, to be with their loved ones and families towards the end of next week, as the government’s zero tolerance approach to Covid has recently been relaxed.

While the official public holiday lasts for 7 days, many businesses will remain closed for two weeks. The Westbound China offices will be closed for the Spring Festival period, as outlined below:

  • Saturday, 21st January – Closed
  • Sunday, 22nd January – Closed
  • Monday, 23rd January – Closed
  • Tuesday, 24th January – Closed
  • Wednesday, 25th January – Closed
  • Thursday, 26th January – Closed
  • Friday, 27th January – Closed
  • Saturday, 28th January – Open
  • Sunday, 29th January – Open
