Chinese New Year Season Things to Do 2013

The Chinese new year season is just around the corner! The festive stuff are launching just about now. Here are some of the ones we like.

We love this cute over size snake at Chinatown

Take a walk around China Town at night

There will be a 108-metre-long 3D snake sculpture made up of about 5,000 square lanterns near the main arch facing Chinatown Point and 88 cube lanterns featuring the 12 animal signs in the Chinese zodiac in the street decorations along Eu Tong Sen Street and New Bridge Road. Over at South Bridge Road, be fascinated by the snake design street light-up formed by over 850 sky lanterns. Pagoda, Smith, Trengganu and Sago Streets have loads of Chinese New Year stuff that absolutely fascinates the kids (and adults) We can spend hours window shopping and checking out the miniature dragon dance props, new year decorations and traditional decoration. There are plenty of goodies too.  While some of the stuff are available all year, Chinese New Year have loads more to see. More about Chinatown Light Up
