CELEBRATE CHINESE NEW YEAR 2013 AT THE PENINSULA BANGKOK

Chinese New Year 2013

The Peninsula Bangkok invites guests and Bangkok residents to celebrate the Chinese New Year 2013 with a range of food and beverage offerings at its restaurants, as well as enticing hotel packages.

Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays and on Chinese New Year’s Eve, families gather for their annual reunion dinner. Celebrated in countries with significant Chinese populations such as Thailand, the origin of Chinese New Year is centuries old and has gained significance because of several myths and traditions. Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the celebration of the Chinese New Year vary widely. People buy presents, decorations, food and clothing. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly clean the house in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for incoming good luck. Children greet their parents by wishing them a healthy and happy New Year and receive money in red paper envelopes. The Chinese New Year tradition is to forget all grudges and sincerely wish peace and happiness for everyone.

Two special set menus are on offer at Mei Jiang Chinese restaurant between 2 and 12 February 2013 – the Fortune menu priced at THB 2,280* per person and the Wealth menu priced at THB 2,680* per person.
