The traditional celebration of the Chinese New Year in Shanghai is marked by massive people gathering near the Longhua Temple to hear the famous bell strike 108 times. You will ask why 108 times? This number is a symbolical one and is believed to bring luck, prosperity and longevity.

Afterwards, you will be entertained by fantastic Chinese dances. And on top of that, you will see infamous Chinese fireworks in action. Mind-blowing!
