In Shanghai, guests at the Peninsula Hotel will greet the Chinese New Year by snaking through the lobby doing a lion dance. In Bangkok and Beijing, they will celebrate at the Peninsula’s afternoon tea. And in Hong Kong, they will watch the city’s colorful holiday fireworks show explode over Victoria Harbour while sipping Champagne on the Sun Terrace.
Most of the events are taking place Feb. 10, when the Chinese New Year kicks off in Asia and around the world.

“We are proud to honor Peninsula’s heritage as Asia’s oldest luxury hotel brand with our Chinese New Year celebrations,” said Robert Cheng, vice president of marketing, adding that guests at the various hotels “will be able to celebrate the start of the Year of the Snake in style and sophistication.”
