Hello, I'd greatly appreciate some travel advice.
What happens to the shops at Chinese New Year? Are they likely to be open on the 2nd of February? I was hoping to buy a new handbag while I'm visiting.
I've heard that Shanghai gets very crowded at New Year. Is it best to avoid the city altogether on the 2nd? I'm currently due to arrive in Shanghai on Feb 1 and fly out on Feb 2nd, and I'm wondering if I should change my flights and avoid the city till a later date.
I'm really looking forward to hearing from anyone who can advise me. Thank you.
