Chinese New Year, or also known as Lunar New Year, is the most celebrated holiday of the Chinese community in China and abroad. So it is not very surprising that in the Philippines, a country which has centuries of ties with China, the celebrations are looked forward too. The Chinese New Year celebrations are big in the Megacity! Celebrate the Chinese New Year on the 28th of January!

Being away from home and living in a different country strips you of that sense of protection and security. Panic, anxiety or depression ultimately strikes if you don't deal with the problem sooner. The results can be disastrous, with some resorting to isolating themselves from the world or worse.

South Korea's capital is a bustling Megacity of 10 million people, with a metropolitan area of more than 25 million. However, crowdedness, noise and traffic are not as bad as in many other cities, thanks to an excellent transport infrastructure and a high number of recreational areas and quiet temples. Korea and the Philippines have strong ties, with many Koreans coming to the Philippines to study English, work, or enjoy the beaches. 90,000 Koreans live in the Philippines, and 45,000 Filipinos live in South Korea, and there are many flight connections between Seoul and Manila.
