Where to travel to in 2019 according to your horoscope
1. Year of the Pig | 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019
It’s the start of a good Lunar New Year for those born in the year of the Pig, especially those looking to take on new challenges. The best way to challenge yourself is to get out of your comfort zone and explore the world. If you are born in the year of the Pig, this is a good time to try something adventurous like skydiving or bungee jumping. New Zealand is a good place to get your 2019 off to an exciting start.
It might also be a challenging year health-wise, so consider booking an affordable flight to Mumbai and perhaps rejuvenate with a Yoga retreat and Ayurvedic treatment to soothe any ailments.
Finances might be tight this year, so your horoscope suggests a budget break to Harbin in China. It’s a unique place where you can tell your friends that you’re in Russia by visiting their Russian Town without actually having to spend on a ticket to Russia.
2. Year of the Rat | 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
Rats are going to have a fabulous 2019! Lady luck will be on your side as you see great advancement in your career. So what better way to spend that hard-earned money than with a trip to beautiful London? Celebrate your success by exploring the enchanting cityscape of London, shop for a whole new wardrobe on Carnaby Street, or simply relax and enjoy the cool weather by sipping tea next to the River Thames.
3. Year of the Ox | 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009
According to the 2019 Lunar New Year horoscope predictions, our strong Ox friends might be in for a challenging year. To stay strong, you should have a clear head, and travel can help you achieve that. Surround yourself with a sturdy influence, like The Great Wall of China. A trip to Beijing to admire The Great Wall could help. Another great way to take the edge off any inconvenience is a trip to the site of the Berlin wall. Do practice vigilance when embarking on anything new this year.
4. Year of the Tiger | 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010
Tigers are by nature curious and adventurous so this year, why not book a cheap flight to Italy and get off the beaten path. Your naturally competitive streak should serve you well when it comes to capturing holiday photos… you might even give your friends a serious case of FOMO! Tigers are energetic types and get great pleasure from being in bustling cities so it is a good idea to head to thrilling Thailand or Cambodia where you’ll have a blast exploring the back streets in search of the most authentic experiences.
5. Year of the Rabbit | 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011
2019 is going to be a great year financially for those of you born in the year of the Rabbit, so splash some of that cash on a dream holiday to Washington DC and pay a visit to The White House. However, you should take caution and wrap up warm as you have a tendency to catch colds easily. Rabbits are also known for their dexterous hands and love of calligraphy so head to Shanghai to immerse yourself in art at the Shanghai Art Museum. On romance, you might find it challenging to find an ideal partner this year. But not to worry for a solo trip to Romania to soak in its rich culture and history might help you find yourself this year.
6. Year of the Dragon | 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012
Dragons are fiery and confident! This Lunar New Year, it is recommended for you to arrange a trip to the mountainous terrain in Cape Town, South Africa where you can challenge yourself to a climb.
2019 is going to be an amazing year for relationships (especially with a Dragon or Monkey) and to make things even better, you could plan a romantic city getaway to Spain and surprise your loved one to a stay in a romantic hotel, sunset cocktails at a rooftop bar, and some retail therapy. Nurture your relationships well and it might reap vast benefits for you in the long term.
7. Year of the Snake | 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013
Snakes are peaceful types who shy away from noisy places and become quite easily stressed in chaotic situations. 2019 might prove to be a challenging year for you which is why travelling will be more beneficial this Lunar New Year. A trip to Greece to see the Acropolis of Athens or a trip to see the Mekong River in Vietnam will help you overcome the challenges you might be facing. Even a staycation in Kuala Lumpur will be beneficial for you.
8. Year of the Horse | 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014
Horses love energetic, crowded cities so hop on a flight to the bustling streets of Hong Kong where you can lose yourself in Tsim Sha Tsui and Victoria Harbour. 2019 will be an excellent year for every aspect of your life. You should enjoy the fruits of your labour by treating yourself to a trip to Tasmania and get that Instagram-worthy shot of the adorable Pademelon. If you want something a little more off the beaten track, a trip to Argentina is also a great option.
9. Year of the Goat | 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015
Those born in the year of the Goat may have a challenging time ahead this Lunar New Year. However, this doesn’t mean you should stay home and brood. A trip to New York with your best pals to experience the Big Apple will provide you with some reprieve from your daily life.
If New York is too far, a short trip to Korea to catch the cherry blossom will be just as effective to reduce the stress that Goats have to shoulder. Bangkok is another destination to clear your head while still being within budget. It is a good idea to be prudent with your finances for the year, spending only on experiences or items that will help improve your spirit.
10. Year of the Monkey | 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016
2019 is a great year for Monkeys as you are potentially in the running for a promotion or pay rise. This is the year you can finally afford to take a couple of memorable breaks. This will be important as Monkeys generally spend more time at work than others.
Since Monkeys tend to steer clear from beaches, be active on holidays and generally prefer city breaks to rural getaways, head to Paris to recharge. You could also consider getting away on a trip to energetic cities like Brazil where you can get lost in crowds and spend endless hours exploring. As a naturally fast learner, you could also head to Canada to learn how to ski.
11. Year of the Rooster | 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017
With good academic prospects for the year, Roosters should consider furthering their studies abroad. Hungary is an ideal city to consider for exchange studies. 2019 is also the year you might be prone to the common cold so load up on that Vitamin C and a trip to the white sandy beaches of Boracay for your dose of Vitamin D.
12. Year of the Dog | 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018
2019 is looking especially good for romance, especially those who want to tie the knot. Those born in the year of the Dog should take the initiative to wow loved one with a trip to the beautiful and culture-rich Spain and sample the best tapas, or explore the bright lights of Shibuya in Tokyo and catch the blooming sakura (if you are with a Rabbit or Horse… things will be electrifying!). The year isn’t looking so hot health-wise for Dogs, so find equilibrium with a peaceful vacation in the white sandy beaches in Maldives to rest and relax.
