Chinese New Year Attractions At Resorts World Genting, SkySymphony, Lion Dance, Choy San Yeh for 2018

Exciting things are happening in Resorts World Genting with the coming of Chinese New Year. It is not just about gambling now at Genting, as there are now numerous restaurants from fine dining to food court, shopping paradise, SkySymphony winch show and there will be other activities with God of Prosperity 'Choy San Yeh' and more.

Here's a short video clip on the Lion Dance 

Lion dances are the norm during Chinese New Year period as according to Chinese tradition, lion dance will bring in luck and drive away any negative energy. I was lucky to be able to attend the launch of exclusive Chinese New Year SkySymphony on 20 January 2018, and saw the performance of 8 lion dancing on stage, six Choy San Yeh distributing mandarin oranges to lucky visitors.

SkySymphony is a state-of-the-art fantastic feature at the SkyAvenue mall where 1,001 winch balls synchronise and move to form different shapes that come alive to tell a story. 

The Chinese letters of the fundamental elements of all things in the universe that interact - wood, fire, earth, metal and water appear respectively in the SkySymphony.  

There are twelve animals of the Chinese Zodiac, which is different for each individual according to the year they were born on, seen gamboling and frolicking in the clouds and in the sea on screen whilst visitors can have a fun time guessing the animals formed by the colourful winch balls whether it be a hissing snake or a majestic dragon. A gleeful ‘Choy San Yeh’ appears onscreen and the animals of the zodiac are ushered out in turn, aptly ending with animal prominently featured for this year, the year of the Dog wishing all visitors ‘Gong Xi Fa Cai’, or blessings for the New Year. 

Here's a video of Chinese New Year SkySymphony Show

The highlight would be the first “Dog Dance” show in the world titled ‘The Prosperity of 9’ with nine dog mascots such as a husky, a Rottweiler and a German Shepherd and many other characters. There will be Choy San Yeh and eight gorgeous ‘blossom fairies’ parading around the resort as well. Make sure to catch the Kwong Ngai Lion Dance show as they usher in the new year with eight golden lions and various stunts and acrobatics at SkyAvenue. These events will be running from 14 February to 4 March at hotel lobbies around the resort and the SkyAvenue mall.

Move over cockerel, now the year of the Dog has arrived.

A lion dance will parade through the resort on the second day of Chinese New Year, 17 February by the Kun Seng Keng Lion & Dragon Dance Association for a special show. A stunning fireworks show will be on display on the 15 February, 23 February and on 2 March to stun the crowd with brilliant pyrotechnics that will light up the night sky at Resorts World Genting 6000 feet above sea level

Chinese New Year SkySymphony Show will be shown everyday on the hour every hour, and there will also be three other shows being shown every half an hour after each Chinese New Year show with The Forest, Urban Symphony and The Goddess showed respectively. The shows start from 10 am to midnight daily. The SkySymphony Chinese New Year show runs from 20 January to 4 March.

Well it's fun and a good idea to go up to the Resorts World Genting highlands for a cool, relaxing holiday and be greet by Choy San Yeh and eight gorgeous ‘blossom fairies’ that will be parading around the resort during this Chinese New Year. If you receive mandarin orange (chinese belief it is symbolic for gold) from Choy San Yeh, it signifies that you receive gold from him and you may prosper in this coming new year of 2018!

Gong Xi Fa Chai!
