iBooknow.com invites all travelers to come and share the experience and celebrate Chinese New Year 2013 in Hong Kong. As old as China itself these annual celebrations have become the perfect blend of ancient traditions and festivities with a new modern twist.  Although this event is held world-wide, nowhere compares to Hong Kong’s festivities.

2013 is the Year of the Snake and Hong Kong will celebrate the lunar holiday in grand style between February 4th and 17th with colorful parades, incredible fireworks, traditional lion and dragon lantern dances, delicious food, cultural events, and merit making. Also known as the Spring Festival, Chinese New Year is a time for families to reunite and spend time together, make merit for good luck in the upcoming year, eat. It is also the time when the elders grant lucky money in red envelopes, which is called “li shi” in Chinese, to the kids to show their love and well wishes for the year. Everyone is invited to join in, and as you can see, most especially the kids.  

Held on the first day of the first month of the Chinese lunar calendar it is the time of the year that the Chinese people take their annual vacation. So be sure to plan your Hong Kong New Year’s holiday well in advance and book with iBooknow.com. Take advantage of our discount reservation rates with no hidden charges and instant booking confirmations.

Although the holiday period is over two weeks long the not-to-be-missed event of the Spring Festival is the Lunar New Year Fireworks Display that will be held this year on the evening the 11th. Thousands of people flock to Hong Kong every year to view this incredible event in the skies over Victoria Harbor. Hotel rooftops, restaurants and high-rises on both sides of the harbor are the perfect place to view the fireworks from, but many revelers will enjoy walking along the harbor side or being out on the water on party and cruise boats to celebrate the Year of the Snake. Be sure to wear red as it’s the favored color of the season.

Like so many holidays the Spring Festival is a great time for special holiday foods and dining out. Hong Kong is renowned for its cuisine and during the lunar holiday special “good luck” dishes are prepared and the New Year’s Eve meal is the most important one of the season. Similar to Christmas in the West, Chinese New Year is a special time for the Chinese people to dine with family and friends and for some it is the most important meal of the year. They gather together to enjoy savory dishes of pork and chicken, duck and Chinese sausage, fish, lobster, scallops and abalone, jiao zi dumplings, rice and sweets.

Because the Chinese New Year is the most travelled period of the year it is wise to book travel and hotel arrangements early so that you do not miss out on the season’s festivities and events.  Whether you choose to stay on Hong Kong Island or the peninsula go to iBooknow.com and plan your Hong Kong Year of the Snake holiday now.
