Fengshui Travel Predictions For 2020 By Emirates

One might say that going on holiday means you are already lucky enough, but this year, Emirates make sure you make the very most of your holidays with their Fengshui travel predictions.

Partnering with Way Fengshui Group, Singapore's first private limited fengshui firm, Emirates bring you a series of fun travel predictions based around the Chinese Zodiac signs for the year of the Rat. Grand Master Tan Khoon Yong has determined which are the best places to visit, when is the best time to travel and what the best way to keep busy on the flights for the coming year. For each zodiac sign, Grand Master Tan has also shared at least one lucky number, which travellers can use to help plan their holidays, which cities are best to visit, what destinations to see and what to do en route.
