In a blink of an eye, Chinese New Year is almost here again; we’re about to chase the rooster away and welcome the dog. Every year at this time, the River Hongbao will attract crowds of families, trying to soak in the luck and prosperity.
This year, the River Hongbao will take place at The Float @ Marina Bay, from 14 to 24 February 2018.
Expect to see splashes of bright red all around the venue, with giant dragon lanterns and the God of Fortune ready to shower you with good blessings and of course, money. Only thing we love more than health is wealth.
As usual, all 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac will be represented at the floating platform, so you can take a sneak preview of what you can expect to experience in the coming year. Of course, take the readings with a pinch of salt. Don’t go crying now if it says you will have bad luck with romance in 2018.
There will also be street performers and Chinese food available, so head down to River Hongbao for a complete Chinese cultural experience! Now if only they gave away actual ang baos (red packet) there…
Dates & Times: 14 to 24 February 2018, timings TBA
Prices: Free admission
