Hope of last minute CNY travel specials

Postby pawre » Mon Jan 09, 2017 9:57 am

Hi, I know I know, didn't book anything to get out of China for Chinese New Year. Just wondering anyone had success with booking a good deal last minute? How last minute was it? And who/where should I check with?

Many thanks!!

Why not stay here? In my humble opinion Shanghai is at it's best when half the population (if not more?) leave it. Quiet roads, better air, few queues - ahhh....bliss.
I myself am leaving but I spent the last couple of CNY's watching TV box sets and eating out at relatively quiet restaurants. Absolutely fantastic.

+100 the doctor is correct it is the best time to be in SH , just stay away from the bund .
I have spent the last 3 years here without an issue , this year I will go back to Europe for work which is good as it gives me extra days to take holidays in a more sensible time of the year like October , November , March , April low seasons with good prices and less crowds ....
