Chinese new year - a good time to stay in Singapore?
My name is Kumar and I am finishing my exchange semester in China next week. I will spend the time from the 31st of January to the 25th of February in Singapore and Malaysia. I will arrive in and leave from Singapore airport.
I am now wondering whether it would be better to stay in Singapore at the beginning when the Chinese new year celebrations start. A friend from Singapore told me that most attractions may be closed and that it may therefore be a bit boring. But I think that the parades could be highly interesting. What do you think?
I would also like to meet up, if I decide to stay in Singapore at the beginning :)
