Chinese New Year 2021

Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival (Chunjie 春节), is the most important holiday in China. It is a time of family gatherings, and many Chinese people travel across the country. Chunjie is also celebrated in other Asian nations, such as South Korea or Malaysia, and among overseas Chinese. A period of increased traffic in China caused by the Spring Festival is called Chunyun (春运). It is the most massive annual migration in the world. Chinese New Year has a significant impact both on business and tourism. Hence, it needs to be always taken into account, especially if we import from China.
