Welcome to New Year’s Island!

This neighborhood is one of the oldest neighborhoods in all of Holidayopolis, going all the way back to 6464 BC, just a few years after the very first celebrations of Lunar New Year ever began! Now, many of our residents like to say Chinese New Year, and many like to say Lunar New Year. . . whatever you decide, it is our honor to host you here on New Year’s Island!

There is so much to do. . . Perhaps you’d like to gather with family at Reunion Circle, then take in a movie at Well Come Cinema. In Ping An Temple, you can find out more about our history, what’s behind our neighborhood, if you like; and when you are ready, feel free to drop by Spring Drops Garden, a beautiful nature space, designed especially for you to drop by any time you need a bit of renewal. . .

Wherever you travel here in New Year’s Island, we wish you deep wells of wellness. All Holidayopolans of every persuasion are welcome here, so, we hope you will, well. . . come!
