For the Chinese, the best way to spend the Lunar New Year is to fly away from the mainland and somewhere else entirely different. China has its Shanghai pilgrimage that sends Chinese families into journeys to thank ancient spirits as part of the general Chinese tradition. Most traveling families cite boredom and troubling journeys at home as reasons to leave the country during the Lunar New Year.

According to Japan Times, Chinese tourists have flocked the land of the rising sun in great numbers this Lunar New Year. The news website cited the statement of Asia-based budget airline Peach Aviation Ltd. as having all their flights taken until February 5. The website post also said about 26.5 percent of Japan's tourist population is made up of Chinese flying from the mainland.

According to Bloomberg, the "Spring Festival," which begins by the entry of the new Lunar Year, is equivalent to America's Thanksgiving -- including the culture of moving elsewhere to avoid traffic and spend holidays as preferred. The business website cited McKinsey & Co Shanghai Partner Steve Saxon who said the new Lunar Calendar year is something they consider a micro-holiday boost for Chinese airlines with fully booked seats guaranteed during the seven-day holiday.

Chinese travelers would not be missing Lunar New Year festivities in almost any part of the world. Travelers in the United States can spend the Lunar New Year's Eve in most urban "Chinatowns" or Chinese temples nearby. Chinese organizations also organize Lunar New Year's Eve events that parallel celebrations in mainland China, such as Dragon Dances and Chinese Zodiac parades.

According to Bloomberg, the Civil Aviation Administration of China notes a 10 percent increase from 2015. Chinese travelers would be heading to more than 100 countries with variation in destination including beaches, urban locations, holiday luxury hotels and even shopping sprees just within reach such as Hong Kong or Taiwan.
