The Lunar New Year is approaching this weekend and China is getting into a state of chaos. Airport terminals are crowded while bus and train stations look like a sea of people. For travelers going to China, it's important to take note of the different holidays happening this year. Here are some travel tips on avoiding China's holiday rush.

According to the Daily Mail, this weekend would be one of the busiest times of the year in China. The Lunar New Year is the time where people go and spend the time with their families either for a nice vacation or just a simple gathering in their homes.

The Chinese New Year would fall on January 28 and with it falling on a weekend, millions of trips would definitely happen. But it's not only the Chinese New Year that travelers should be aware of because the festive period in China already started and wouldn't end until February.

This period of time where festivals and holidays are rampant is called the Spring Festival according to Travelchinaguide. It started on Jan. 13 which is 15 days ahead of the Lunar New Year and ends on Feb. 21. It's expected that millions of Chinese migrants would travel all over the country and it's actually of the largest migrations in the world.

However, there are also other dates to take note of when traveling to China. Due to the large population, even the common holidays are a struggle because millions of people will be traveling as well.

Chinahighlights reported that some of the important dates to take note of are Labor Day( May 1-3), Tomb-sweeping day(Apr.4-6) and Dragon Boat Festival(May 30-Jun.1). These days aren't as busy as the Spring Festival but it's important to prepare for these holidays too.

If you and your family are planning a China trip, might as well wait it out and let the holidays finish. However, if everything is already set, then at least you can brace yourselves for the experience of a lifetime.
