Jan 31 is Chinese traditional New Year is Spring Festival, which is  biggest festival for Chinese people and with best celebration mood. Jan 1 is the general New Year for the whole world, and the activities belong to shops and malls that not as lovely as Spring Festival. There are good restaurants for Guangdong  cuisine, you could go to shangxiajiu pedestrian road and try the ones there. Such as Lianxiang Restaurant, Guangzhou Restaurant.

Is it a good time to visit Shenzhen ,Zhuhai and Macau during the Chinese New Year period 28 Jan 2012 to 5 Feb 2012? Are all the shops, tourist attractions and restaurants opened during this period? Thank you
It is not wise to tour China during this period as everywhere is crowded and some ressturant may close for the Chinese Spring Festival. I suggest you avoid this period. guest replied on 2011-05-23
