South East Asia

12 - 27 Feb 2021

By Katia Damborsky

The Chinese New 2021 year will draw an impressive fleet of superyachts to the cruising grounds of South East Asia when the 15-day celebrations get underway on February 12.

Marking the start of the new moon, the Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, is the most celebrated event in the Chinese calendar.

Festivities are held throughout China, and extend into the surrounding regions of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. As such, hiring a yacht for the event in any one of these destinations promises an unforgettable experience.

Chinese New Year Celebrations

Over the course of the event, South East Asia is ablaze with light and colour. Parades put on a spectacular show of dragon dances, elaborate costumes and confetti, and street bazaars serve food and play music.

2021 marks the year of the ox, an animal which is symbolic of honesty, hard work and intelligence. Celebrations will follow this theme, with many figurines and effigies of the ox on display throughout the event.

This event is the perfect way to experience the resplendent cruising grounds of South East Asia at their most magical. Ring in the lunar New Year on a yacht, and expect to be dazzled by the magnitude of the festivities.

Hiring a yacht gives you the perfect vantage point to watch fireworks displays and lantern shows lighting up the sky, and luckily there are plenty of waterfront locations to choose from.

High-spirited processions take place at Singapore’s popular River Hongbao event, celebrations amp up a gear in Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur and street food, firecrackers and traditional dances can be enjoyed at the Old Phuket Festival in Thailand.

Providing unparalleled style coupled with the chance to explore this beautiful part of the world on a superyacht vacation, there is no better time to visit than during the Chinese New Year.
