There will never be a dull moment with its enormous shopping districts (some close after midnight), spectacular palaces with centuries of history and amazing food (especially if you love spicy food). Surrounded by picturesque high mountains and clear waters, it’s safe to say that people born in the Year of Dog, Tiger and Horse will fall in love with “Land of Morning Calm”.

Hong Kong may be a little fast-paced for some of us but people born in the Year of Dragon, Monkey and Rat adore it.

#4. Born in the Year of Snake, Ox and Rooster
Wise and eloquent, people born in the Year of Snake, Ox and Rooster are the thinkers. While some may be more private, a big part of them enjoy sharing their views with their loved ones.
The less well-known destinations are what pique their curiosity and here are two which will definitely pique theirs!
Ho Chi Minh
Think crispy baguettes (it can be as cheap as $0.10 for one), stunning French colonial architecture and unforgettable coffee. It’s true when they say you have to trust that the throngs of motorists will not hit you when you cross the roads - without traffic lights. It’s nerve-wrecking but it gives us an immense satisfaction when we reach the other side of the road!
You don’t need a lot (of money) to enjoy this city either. Just bring an open mind and you’ll leave this charming city wanting more.

Bali is gaining popularity in recent years for its growing hipster cafes but it’s still very much underrated for its natural beauty. From the famed temples on sea rock and cliffs (imagine these against the backdrop of a sunset sky) to tranquil rice terraces, this place isn’t just for the beach bunnies.
People born under the sign of Snake, Ox and Rooster will also appreciate the warm hospitality of the locals. There may a slight language barrier but they will always try to make you feel welcomed and comfortable - and that’s what we love most about this lovely place.
