Vigan during Chinese New Year 2018

I am looking at a possible trip to Vigan during CNY in Feb next year. Just wondering is CNY been observed there?

If there's any in Vigan it would be boring compared with what you are used to in Singapore. If you are looking for Chinese festivities you will seldom see them outside Chinatown in Manila and other big cities.

Hi kegler747, thanks for your reply. I am actually hoping for no celebration of CNY so that it's business as usual with no shop closing or quiet street.

Shops, restaurants and activities for tourists will be business as usual as CNY is no big deal in Vigan even if it's a holiday.

No - there is nothing special done at Vigan for Chinese new year. It is pretty quiet and peaceful.

They do have a local festival (fietsta) later (around May) at Vigan on one of the weekends. This is not advertised much.
