The Chinese New Year on Saturday is expected to be celebrated with a blast in countries with Chinese diaspora such as in Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

"Often, the evening preceding Chinese New Year's Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner", Jin says.

"Chinese visitors spend on average $8,328 per trip, the highest spending of all nationalities visiting Australia".
