Lunar New Year in Binondo

It’s a vibrant mix of firecrackers, lion dances, intense percussion beats, lucky charms, fresh produce, delicious food and riotous color.

It’s the Lunar New Year in Binondo, Manila. Established in 1594, it is said to be the oldest Chinatown in the world.

The place is brimming with life on a regular day, but this is amplified ten times over during one of the year’s highly anticipated occasions.
