Chinese New Year is best recognised for having one of the grandest fireworks displays on earth, which almost everyone in Shanghai contributes to. The dates vary every year but it's usually in February and lasts for 15 days. Apart from the fireworks, visitors won't notice too much in the way of celebrations - it's very much a family occasion. However, it's worth visiting Yu Yuan Gardens on the final day, known as Lantern Festival.

Venue:
Throughout Shanghai especially in temples and parks.

Event cost:
