In north China’s Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region, self-driving travellers have gathered to experience the feeling of snow and ice. The regional tourism bureau said, various options, including winter sports, prairie customs performance and hot spring are offered for urban dwellers, who want a city getaway during the holiday.
In the mountainous Sichuan Province, rural residents in Qishan Village were having a house-warming time just before the lunar new year.
Villagers in Qingcheng Township, east China’s Shandong Province, staged a gala. People from five villages performed dancing, opera singing, stand-up comedy and even magic shows in a courtyard, which was completely packed with people despite the biting cold.
The gala in Dongdazhang Village began in 1950’s and 60’s, and has evolved from a local opera gathering to an annual variety show that attracts audiences from nearby villages.
For most Chinese, the new year’s eve is dedicated to the four-hour-long gala that started at 8 pm on the state broadcaster. This year, many of them held a smartphone in hand for “gift money.”
From the southernmost islands to the icebound provinces in the north, China is busy making celebrations to welcome the Year of Monkey which begins after midnight.
