8Adventures would like to wish all our Chinese friends and customers a very happy new year. Thailand borders mainland China and we welcome hundreds of visitors from the Middle Kingdom each year.

Also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year, Chinese New Year is one of the most celebrated events across the world and there will be celebrations in Chiang Mai starting with a parade this morning at Tha Phae Gate and festivities all through the day. Chinatown in Warorot market is a great place to check out the celebrations and sample delicious Chinese food and see traditional performances.

2018 is the year of the dog and is associated with the element Earth.
