The city is popular as more than just a bustling business hub though especially as Shenzhen International Airport offers flights at a lower cost than many more traditional tourist destinations in China. One of the best times to visit the city is during the Spring Festival, held at the beginning of each year.
The celebration of Chinese New Year, known in China as Spring Festival, begins on the 1st day of the first month in the traditional Chinese calendar. The celebrations end on the 15th day with the Lantern Festival, a day that is also regarded as the Chinese version of St Valentine’s Day. A great many events and performances take place in Shenzhen throughout the Spring Festival, celebrating traditional Chinese culture. Food and drink festivals, art shows, dance exhibitions, and street parties all take place during the festival.
