Happy NY!

From Wan Chai.


Heading back to Australia today.

Mind you, Chinese New Year is a huge event in Sydney too these days.

In the month of February 2016 there were well over 300,000 visitors to Australia from China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, a six-fold increase since the year of the Sydney Olympics in 2000. 


The big numbers might straddle January and February this year.

But either way, recent trends - including the price of my hotel, I should add - suggest it's going to be a big one.

It's the year of the rooster, and hopefully Sydney Roosters (I say that every year, though).
