South East Asia
5 - 19 Feb 2019
The Chinese New Year will bring out the most impressive superyachts South East Asia has to offer when the 15-day-long celebration gets underway on 5th February 2019.
Marking the start of a new moon, the Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, is the most important celebration in the Chinese calendar.
As such, undertaking a luxury yacht charter to see in the Year of the Pig presents a wonderful opportunity to experience South East Asia at its most spectacular. Expect colourful parades, festive street bazaars, magnificent firework displays, lantern shows and dragon dances.
For example, take in the vibrant procession at Singapore’s renowned River Hongbao event, join in the brilliant celebrations in Malaysia’s capital Kular Lumpar or enjoy the street food, firecrackers and traditional dance at the Old Phuket Festival in Thailand.
