Chinese New Year – Year of the Dog

新年快乐!
This is how you say Happy New Year in Chinese. This weekend i got to discover the ever so fascinating Chinese New Year in Bangkok.  So this year is the Year of the Dog which is the eleventh sign in zodiac. See as a pet animal i love dog compare to other animals. Why because they are friendly and loyal to their master.
As i was about to unwind the essence of the Chinese New Year i was also excited to try some Chinese delicacies. We did not miss to visit China Town which is in Yaowarat Road approximately 20 min from the city. China town as expected was all painted red with eye catching decorations and Chinese men & women looked their best in their traditional wear. The color red is much loved by the Chinese in general as it represents happiness and good fortune. Not to forget the alleys were beautifully decorated with the lanterns and was an absolute treat to your eyes.
The place was crowded with spectators and we could see everyone having their best time enjoying the seasonal festival with local foods, music and stealing some best deals in local shops. We hopped into a road side restaurant and ate plateful of Thai noodles. The local food stalls were keeping us full which were reasonably priced. Definitely this place is a gastronomic paradise. In some cities you will be able to witness fireworks during Chinese New Year which is an amazing sight.
May this New Year brings lot of prosperity and a good health amongst us.
Until next time.. ciao !
