Celebrate Chinese New Year in Bangkok: Tradition and Festivity   

Bangkok, a city famous for its lively culture and diverse communities, bursts into a kaleidoscope of excitement and color with the Chinese New Year celebrations.

This 2024, the event is set for Saturday, February 10th, marking the beginning of the Year of the Dragon, an icon deeply revered in Chinese tradition. Although Chinese New Year is not an official public holiday in Thailand, Bangkok’s Chinese neighborhoods typically enjoy a day off for family gatherings and festivities. The celebration starts on New Year’s Eve with family prayers and ancestral tributes, culminating in a communal feast.

Yaowarat, the heart of Bangkok’s Chinatown, becomes a hub of festivities. The streets are alive with crowds, the sounds of firecrackers, and the captivating sight of dragon dances. The local culinary scene is a highlight, offering a variety of traditional Chinese foods. Street vendors fill the air with the aromas of dumplings, spring rolls, roasted duck, and sweet treats, creating a paradise for food enthusiasts.

This Chinese New Year, we invite you to experience the festivities with a stay at the Prince Palace Hotel in Bangkok. Conveniently located just 10 minutes by taxi from Yaowarat, the hotel is an ideal base for exploring the celebrations.

We’re also excited to present special dining experiences at the Prince Palace Hotel to mark the Year of the Dragon. Enjoy our special Chinese New Year set menu priced at THB 12,800 for 10 people, featuring delectable dishes like Braised Shark’s Fin Soup with Dried Scallop, Barbecued Peking Duck, and Stir-fried Tiger Prawns with XO Sauce.
