    Seriously, CYN festival is not by watching, it is time for family reunion, kinda homecoming feeling after years' seperation.
    If you really want to wacth it, you may go to the railway station and bus station.
    But we did have different traditional celebration in different areas.
    The tradition preserved best are mostly in rural part of china but not in Shenzhen

    Acutally just like waht simon said we do not celebrate it in public but we do have some traditional methods for celebrating it.You might go to the street or an area where many people sell the flowers and so on.But what makes you feel that you are celebrating CYN is the FIREWORK and the FIRECRACKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Usually we watch this at home with family...If you wanna watch it in a place with more people I guess it's hard because everyone's home...

    If anyone (not chinese person) has time, go with Michael to his hometown.
    You come back by bus to SZ. Does not cost so much.
    The villages makes big big fireworks, dont miss it..
    I myself have pre-ordered a lot of fireworks in Haikou

    Well,Simon's right.We have a goood meal with other family members.Many people in Shenzhen are from other places of China so they will rush back to their hometowm~Find a small restaurant and chat with those people who choose to stay~

    Fear enough, thanks to you all for your informative relays . It seems Hong kong is my stop for this, as i liked the parade they do in the spring festival.
    Cheers,
