What to do for the upcoming Chinese New Year? Here are some ideas that we did last year and some we are doing this week:

1. Do a Binondo Walking Tour

Walk the streets and Visit the Binondo Church
Ride a Bike or take snapshots

Go Tiangge Shopping

2. Eat at an authentic Chinese Restaurant, street food, chinese lumpia or  maybe a dumpling house will do!

Cafe Mezzanine, Fireman Volunteer Coffee Shop

3. Dress up your little one with Cheong Sam
