Hi Pen

Most shop will be closed during the public holiday except eating shop/restaurants ,will take this opportunity to make some good buck.

Some super market will be opened during this time

Hi Pen,

The first day will be mostly closed except some restaurants and shopping mall's anchor tenants and of course those fast food chains will remain open.

So, if possible, come on the 2nd or 3rd day onsward, otherwise, stay and relax in hotel for the 1st day.

The chinese new year eve is however unmissable as the night market and temples will be open past midnight and you can see firework and listen to performance, it is actually the highlight.

Pen,

As other posters have mentioned, some hawkers and restaurants are open during CNY but the premium is really hefty!!
