With offices in Singapore and Hong Kong, our consultants are well experienced in designing specialist luxury tours for the Chinese New Year period. Our team will ensure you get the most from your limited time off at end of the lunar year.

If you’re looking for a short, relaxing break, we recommend the tropical beaches of the Maldives, the Philippines and Thailand. Browse our portfolio of ultra-luxury resorts in these destinations.

For family adventure, we recommend Australia or Brazil, while mysterious Myanmar has become one of our hottest cultural tours. Luxury skiing in Niseko, Switzerland and Whistler has also proved to be popular recently.

Lightfoot’s Travel Designers will handle all your travel logistics, and all our tours are 100% tailor-made. Contact our team to find out more.
