Greetings to nearly 2 billion people in China, Asia and throughout the world who are celebrating the Lunar New Year, the most important holiday of the year for millions from Shanghai to Singapore. Centuries old and based in ancient Chinese myth and tradition, the “Spring Festival” as it is known in China is a two-week celebration centered around family gatherings, special foods and other traditions that vary from region to region. Many of these customs revolve around the ideals of reflecting on oneself and ushering in good fortune for the New Year. The Lunar New Year in 2013 begins on February 10 and is the Year of the Snake. From Korea and Vietnam to Taiwan and Malaysia, this holiday is a cultural focal point in many of the most popular destinations for certified English teachers.
Taipei, the capital city and cultural heart of Taiwan, is compelling in its wholehearted embrace of both modernity and ancient tradition. Taiwan is located in the southeast corner of China, at a lush, tropical latitude akin to the Bahamas.
