Roost here for Chi­nese New Year

Friday - - Recipe Cards -

There’s no place like Hong Kong to ring in the Year of the Rooster in all its au­then­tic splen­dour – streets strewn with blaz­ing red lanterns, dragon dancers and colour­ful pa­rades weav­ing in and out of crowds in Sal­is­bury and Nathan Road, while fire­works light up the sky over Victoria Har­bour. Over­look­ing the har­bour and con­ve­niently lo­cated in the thick of all the ac­tion is The Ex­cel­sior, Hong Kong. Book its Chi­nese New Year room pack­age and stay in a Su­pe­rior Side Har­bour View Room, have a daily break­fast buf­fet and get a tra­di­tional laisee (red packet) con­tain­ing din­ing credit to spend in the ho­tel’s restau­rants, free in­ter­net, New Year gifts and 20 per cent off body and fa­cial treat­ments. From Dh653, pack­age avail­able un­til Fe­bru­ary 13. Call 00852 2837 6840 or email exhkg-reser­va­tions@mohg.com.

You don’t have to jet off to China to en­joy the Chi­nese New Year. To­day and to­mor­row Ti­lal Liwa Ho­tel, in Abu Dhabi’s Empty Quar­ter, is of­fer­ing overnight stays from Dh599 with buf­fet break­fast and Chi­nese buf­fet din­ner at Al Badiya Res­tau­rant. Call 02 854 6835 or email reser­va­tions.ti­lal@danatho­tels.com.
