Coming Chinese New Year Holiday

Postby Dear Wanda » Fri, 26 Jan 2007 12:18 pm

Anyone of you flying off on the coming Chinese New Year Holiday? I think most of the people will fly off on the 16th Feb because of the long weekend.

Im flying out on the 17th. Cant get flight on the 16th and cant get flight back to sg as yet! Im a dead woman!
In Sg, people are so kiasu, for flights , movies, dinner etc. ,etc.,even to go out with friends you always have to book in advance! Ive learnt it the hard way that if you don't book in advance during holiday season you are stuck here... :(
Live it up! :)

The reason I ask is because I am planning a event and I am struck on the date - 16th Feb or 24th Feb.

I am scare that most of the people will not be in town on 16th if I do the event that day. May be 24th is safer....

Yeap, advance booking is da keyword....I started enquiring about my tix in October....cos after January, dont expect a good bargain and even seats

Im flying off on the 17th as well and I was blessed with a return tix on the 25th :D

brightmoonx : Good luck with finding a return tix, keep trying daily cos there's bound to be cancellations
