Which Chinese zodiac is luckiest in 2023?

The year of the Rabbit (Who else?)

The luckiest Chinese zodiac signs in the year of the Rabbit 2023 are Oxes, Tigers, and Snakes. Then, with not quite so much luck, come Dogs, Horses, Goats, and Pigs.

Where can I celebrate the Chinese New Year 2023 in Nerja?

If you are staying in Nerja and are lucky enough to be staying with Nerja Beach Holidays, you are indeed lucky. There is no better way to enjoy any festive season than staying in your own self-catering accommodation. This allows you the time and space to make your own decisions as to where you will celebrate.

Nerja has several places to go for the Chinese festivities. I have eaten in most. China House is a long-time favourite of tourists and locals alike. Asiatico Yuan is another restaurant of good repute.

There are more, of course. According to TripAdvisor, here are the top-rated Chinese Restaurants in Nerja.

For my money, the best way to find which is the best place to celebrate is to ask the people who live in Nerja and those who are regular visitors.
