Places to travel to in 2024, based on your Chinese zodiac sign


Whether you're up for some hustle and bustle, or looking to immerse yourself in new cultures, check out these recommendations for your next getaway!

If you are thinking of hopping on a plane and taking a trip during the holidays, but have no idea where to go, look no further! 

We at HRO have put together a list of places you could potentially travel to this year, based on your Chinese zodiac sign. 

As with all predictions, please take these recommendations with a pinch of salt!

Dragon (1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024) 

Dragon people are known for their bravery and fearlessness. Tap into that energy and take yourself to Australia. Or if you prefer to go somewhere within Asia, hop over to Kuala Lumpur, be adventurous and head to Phuket, give Hong Kong a go, or even Jeju, South Korea. 

Rat (1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020) 

Those born in the year of the Rat are known to be always on the lookout for any opportunities that may come their way. If an opportunity arises in Japan, Taipei, Beijing, Dubai, or even New York, seize it and book a flight to wherever resonates with you!  

Ox (1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021) 

Ox people are hard workers. You, especially, deserve a break! Make your way to Italy, where you will be able to relax, wine, dine, and soak in the rich culture and serenity.  

For those who still wish to enjoy the hustle and bustle, New York, Hong Kong, Beijing, Japan, more specifically Kyoto, are destinations that could fit your pace. 

But for those who are looking to escape the crowds, unwind and need a place to retreat, the Canadian Rockies or Lake Baikal in Russia offer beautiful natural landscapes that will benefit you both spiritually and emotionally.  

Tiger (1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022) 

Tigers are courageous and active people who long a good challenge and adventure in life. Venture to South Africa if you are feeling ambitious and would want to embrace the wildlife! 

For those who would prefer to stay a little closer to home, Langkawi, Phuket, Hong Kong, New Delhi, and Sydney would still be great options to experience. 

Rabbit (1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023) 

    Rabbits are known to be imaginative. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you see yourself?  

    We recommend Bali, Kyoto, Prague, or even France, and allow yourself to book activities that you never expect to see yourself doing!  

    Snake (1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013) 

    Those born in the year of the Snake are sensitive, effective and adaptable. Book your tickets to Egypt and learn about its history and culture. Don’t forget to take a cruise down the River Nile and sit in a carriage whilst camels walk you through the desert and pyramids. 

    Other places you could venture to are Kyoto or Rome, where you can lean into your creative side and appreciate the rich arts culture these cities have to offer.  

    If these places seem a little too far for you, and you would prefer a quieter and more relaxing scene, Bangkok, Bali, or Maldives would be a great alternative.  

    Horse (1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014) 

      The outgoing personality of a horse could bring you to places like Brazil, Zurich, Denpasar and Chennai, where you can get to know the locals more and immerse yourself in the history and natural landscapes that each country has in store.  

      Goat (1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015) 

      Those born in the year of the Goat are known to be meek on the outside, but strong and resilient on the inside. Ease any tension you may have this year and make your way to Sri Lanka, Santorini, Edinburgh, or even Bali, and enjoy the peace and quiet.  

      Monkey (1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016) 

      Monkeys are known for their active and energetic personality. They are also able to integrate in any group effortlessly. This year, sign yourself up for a tour around Mexico City, or visit Queenstown, New Zealand for a holiday filled with adventure!  

      If you are a Monkey who is curious about all things history, take a trip to Berlin, Kyoto, or even Cape Town, South Africa, where you can experience new sights, smells, and tastes.  

      Rooster (1957,1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017) 

        If you are a Rooster who is efficient and is a planner, exploring the tourist attractions that San Francisco, Seville, Spain, Tuscany, and Prague would make your holiday worth your while!  

        Or if you are based in Singapore and would rather stay in for this year, take some time to plan a holiday just to explore spots around our Little Red Dot that you have yet to see!  

        Dog (1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018) 

          Dog people are friendly, fun-loving, and family-oriented.  

          Plan a family holiday or bring those plans that you have made with your friends out of the group chats and into the plane to Japan (Kyoto & Hokkaido are great places to check out), New Zealand, Norway, Iceland, or England!  

          Pig (1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019) 

            Finally, those born in the year of the Pig are optimistic.  

            If you are looking for an adventure, make your way to Spain and immerse yourself in the vibrant festivities that the city has to show.  

            But if Spain seems a little too optimistic for you, take a shorter flight to places like Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Guangzhou, or Perth, and find hotspots that tourists enjoy frequenting.
