Chinese New Year celebrations will continue for seven days in the world’s most luxurious hotel. Burj Al Arab is expecting a peak in Chinese visitors for Chinese New Year, starting from 10 February 2013.
In the last three years, the ease of securing UAE visas has helped attract a record number of Chinese tourists and businesspeople to the UAE and many have made Burj Al Arab their prime destination. Contributing to this success, the hotel’s authentic Far East Asian dining destination, Junsui, is drawing on the expertise of Chef Foong to create a week-long, celebratory experience for the Year of the Snake.
To launch its Chinese New Year celebrations, Burj Al Arab will project a massive red calligraphic serpent artwork on the sail-shaped exterior to welcome the Year of the Snake.
On the evening of 10 February, the hotel will host Chinese dignitaries and their families to witness the traditional lighting of the lion’s eyes to initiate a series of traditional lion dances. To the accompaniment of the Chinese zither music, Chinese delicacies hand-selected by Chef Foong will be served from live cooking stations, while children’s Chinese craft activities will entertain the youngest guests. The celebrations will continue for one week in Junsui, with traditional dishes including Fa Gao (Chinese-style cupcakes) and Nian Gao (new year cake) served alongside Dim Sum and Peking Duck.
