(1/26/2008)

The Chinese Year of the Rat (4706) dawns on February 7, 2008, with celebrations lasting over 15 days causing much of Asia to slow down or comes to a standstill. As in year's past, Bali hotels are expecting a rush of business over the coming holidays with Garuda Indonesia adding 2,637 seats system-wide and 293 additional seats to Bali to facilitate the expected travel crunch.

Can we Help You Book a Room?

Bali Discovery Tours and www.balidiscovery.com is standing by to assist Bali visitors seeking assistance in securing accommodation, transportation and tour arrangements in Bali over the coming Lunar New Year celebrations.

Some Practical Advice

The celebration of Chinese New Years is rich with tradition and superstitious belief. To help you launch a successful "Year of the Rat" - a year rather ominously associated with death, war and atrocities – here's some practical advice to help you steer a good course.

Do's

• Open a window to welcome good luck and the new year.

• Confuse ghosts and spirits by switching lights on and off.

• To sweeten the year ahead, be sure to eat some sweets over the New Year.

• Time to clean house. A Clean and tidy home will bring good luck in the coming year.

• What you do on February 7th may influence the year ahead. Many gamble on that day as "winning" on the day signals a year of prosperity ahead.

• Buy a pair of new slippers – it symbolizes stepping on those who spread gossip about you.

• Take a bath in pomelo leaves on New Year's eve as it is believed to bring health in the year ahead.

Don'ts

• Some consider buying a pair of new shoes as bad luck. The word "shoe" in Cantonese is a homophone for "rough" or "evil" in Mandarin.

• "Don't buy pants during Chinese New Year. The word of "pants" is a homophone for "bitter" in Cantonese.

• Washing your hair on New Year's may wash away good luck.

• Similarly sweeping the floor on New Year's Day might send fortune into the dustpan.

• Avoid discussions of death in the early days of the Chinese New Year.

• Don't buy books during Chinese New Year as it may precipitate a personal loss.

• Avoid wearing black and white. Black is the color of bad luck and white is a color appropriate to funerals.
