Roost here for Chinese New Year
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
