New Year starts with a bang in Shanghai, where exuberant and
exceedingly loud fireworks displays rock the city all night long on
this, China's most merry of celebrations. Not everyone appreciates
the scale of the fireworks, but traditionally the noise is
necessary to frighten off evil spirits for the coming year. During
the national holiday the Bund and clubs throughout the city are
thronged with revellers, making for a city-wide party. In 2008 the
Year of the Rat begins.
Event Date: 23 February 2011 Venue: Throughout the city
