Easter is upon us, and for many this religious holiday is an important time for family and, of course, chocolate. But take a look around the world and you’ll find a mix of fun and strange Easter traditions. Water-fights, costumes and parades; this religious holiday has some fascinating cultural twists.
We take a look at five Easter traditions that caught our eye.
As Chinese New Year approaches next week, chozun 途赞 are certainly in the mood to celebrate. This week, we’ve celebrated Chiang Mai – Thailand, Patras – Greece, Taipei – Taiwan, Tripura – India & today, Kujawy – Poland #chozunaday:
Celebrated: National Teacher’s Day (วันครู Wan Kruu)
Place: Chiang Mai, Thailand
Date: 16 January
After the bustle of Bangkok, head for a well deserved break surrounded by pristine rainforest reserves, mountains (like Doi Inthanon – Thailands highest mountain), churning waterfalls, serene forest, bubbling hot springs & peaceful country villages.
The New Year is upon us. Here’s what we celebrated this week to kick off 2017.
Celebrated: Black and White Carnival (Carnaval de Blancos y Negros)
Place: Pasto, Colombia

How chozun celebrated: Face painting, music and you bet, we danced
The clock ticks 12am. There’s a countdown that most don’t get right, some even miss. Fireworks. Music. Fun. You’ve been preparing for the New Year. Heck, in 2016, the line up of famous people who passed are enough for us all to want to kiss 2016 goodbye. To start fresh.
Who will you kiss at midnight? What will you wear? You’ve sorted all your New Years Resolutions. You are ready to go – be healthier, lose weight, quit smoking, stop drinking (as of the 02.01.2017), get fit, don’t eat as much chocolate, visit Mum & Dad more, learn to drive, do more yoga, spend more time doing things for yourself, travel, buy a house, and all the rest.
At chozun, we love travel (I think most of you know that by now), discovering new places and making your lives easier wherever you are. Because life is worth celebrating and the world is an amazing place, offering rich experiences, we’ve decided to celebrate each day with different #chozunaday content across all our platforms.
#chozunaday is our way of celebrating and sharing a new and exciting place in the world with you, every day – because daily, something around the world is celebrated. We’ll give you five top insider tips on travelling to that place, interesting facts, fun giveaways, videos and more ways for you to engage with us.
