Asian Holiday Dates By Country

Feb 12, 2018 | Global News

As we approach the Chinese New Year period once more, and as factories across Asia are expediting products prior to national close downs, now seems a good time to share the public holidays throughout the region.

Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival in modern China, or simply the Lunar New Year, is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar.

In Chinese astrology, each year is related to a Chinese zodiac animal according to the 12-year cycle. 2018 is an Earth Dog Year so will be know as the Year of the Dog.

Our guide below highlights the public holiday dates during the period that relate to each individual country.
