Here we go again: a week of Spring Festival holiday does not come without a cost. It means that those days must be made up for! As the city prepares, you should too.

Sunday February 15 is an official workday, and Spring Festival break starts on Wednesday February 18 until Tuesday February 24. From Wednesday February 25 normal life resumes, with an extra workday put in place on Saturday February 28.

Are you fearing the holiday closures? We've compiled all you need to know on who is open throughout the holiday, and when.

If you're still keen to travel during Chinese New Year, want to learn how to make the most of your time off, or even head to a Temple Fair (as well as whether or not to actually bother), we've got you covered. Also, make sure you don't get rammed in the year of the sheep!
