As Spring Festival approaches many fairs will be held around Beijing which combine local and foreign culture and add to the festival atmosphere of the season.
The Summer Palace will hold an imperial temple fair, while the Temple of Earth has built a special street for young lovers to celebrate the festival together.
If you love animals, you can attend a pet show in the Chinapet Park in the Asian Games Village.
You can also go to the Chaoyang Park to watch a Spectacular Parades and many other shows performed by some foreign artists.
Any one of these fairs will give you an unforgettable experience of the Chinese New Year.
Most of the temple fairs will start from the February 8th - the Chinese Spring festival Eve - and last for about one week till the Lantern Festival.
