It’s that time of the year again! For Western people it’s Christmas, when you live in Asia it’s Chinese New Year – the biggest holiday of the year.
This year, Chinese New Year comes early and falls on 22nd January 2023.
Now that travel to most countries is possible again after the pandemic, many people will be travelling to spend Chinese New Year with their families or enjoy a short holiday.
So I thought I’d share the good travel dates for the CNY period with you, just in case!
To get home in time for the celebrations, the best travel dates are as follows:
|Date||Conflict Animal (ie NOT a good day for this zodiac animal)|
|Tuesday, 3rd January 2023||Rabbit|
|Wednesday 4th January 2023||Dragon|
|Saturday, 7th January 2023||Sheep|
|Sunday, 8th January 2023||Monkey|
|Monday 9th January 2023||Rooster|
|Monday, 16th January 2023||Dragon|
|Tuesday 17th January 2023||Snake|
|Thursday, 19th January 2023||Sheep|
|Friday, 20th January 2023||Monkey|
|Saturday 21st January 2023||Rooster|
During the 15 days of the Chinese New Year Period, the following are the most auspicious travel dates:
|Saturday, 28th January 2023||7th Day of CNY||Dragon|
|Sunday, 29th January 2023||8th Day of CNY||Snake|
|Tuesday, 31st January 2023||10th Day of CNY||Sheep|
|Wednesday, 1st February 2023||11th Day of CNY||Monkey|
|Thursday, 2nd February 2023||12th Day of CNY||Rooster|
If you cannot avoid travelling on one of the less auspicious days, i.e. one of the dates not mentioned above, I would highly recommend you carry a protective amulet with you. Also the conflict animals mentioned in the tables would benefit from carrying a protective amulet during their journey.
