The international New Year is celebrated with great gusto in the Indian Ocean island country of Mauritius. Partying plus indulgence in food, drink and merriment make New Year celebrations particularly memorable here on Mauritius.
A stunning festival in which devotees inflict wounds upon themselves in a test of faith, with little apparent effect.
Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year takes place for 42 days during January or February, depending on the Chinese calendar. This is an exceptionally festive time for Singapore. If you plan on being here during that time, best to book your accommodation early. Festivities take place all over the city and include the spectacular Chingay Parade, music and dance performances, fireworks and a multitude of other parades.
