If you have the opportunity to spend some time in Malaysia during the Chinese New Year one month celebration, dont’ miss the famous Lion Dance. Malaysian’s kung fu schools are very famous for their  Lion Dance.

This very colorful lion, animated by 2 young kung fu students, is not in danger and can be spotted during chinese new year (CNY) month, almost in every town. Don’t panic if all shops are close for a few days – maybe one week- and if some cities look empty. The chinese-malaysian community celebrates CNY within the family, but celebrations in chinese-temples will last one month. Every shopping center gets it’s own lion dance, so check out the programs and catch the lion and his golden oranges.

Malacca and Georgetown are some of the best places to feel  the CNY atmosphere.
