Welcoming the Year of the Snake (蛇)

The Chinese had a very great influence on Phuket and this is especially prevalent in  the architecture of Phuket Old Town. If you are really interested in the origins of this influence, I suggest you visit Phuket Thai Hua Museum.

At Cape Panwa Hotel, we did not celebrate Chinese New Year for the traditional fifteen days but just the last night.

Chef Chanman and his team put on a Chinese buffet fit for an emperor featuring all the traditional delicacies, whilst guests were entertained by Chinese Cabaret, Chinese musicians and the traditional Chinese Lion that evening.

Some of our guests benefitted from further entertainment at Phuket Old Town Festival where the celebrations lasted for three days.

Stay tuned for highlights in the Otter’s next blog.

新年快樂 (xīn nián kuài lè)
