People all over Asia are already preparing for Chinese New Year. This year, Chinese New Year falls on 5th February 2019. It is the most important date in the Chinese calendar. Millions of people will be travelling to celebrate with their families. Chinese people who live abroad will return home for this special occasion if they can, while others use the public holidays for a short break away from home.
