River Hongbao 2011 – Rabbit year – Many Returns

River Hongbao Festival is held from 1 – 13 Feb 2011 at the Floating Platform. It will be open from 12pm to 11.30pm with the exception of 2 Feb, Chinese New Year Eve, which will be closed at 12.30am. It is themed as Year of the Rabbit: Many Returns

I went there and took some of the photos. Quite a few interesting decor there.

There’s a fun fair near the entrance of the River Hongbao Festival. Some of the games area are beneath the steps or under the sheltered area (below the seats of the floating platform. The kids will prefer to play games but heard the tokens are quite expensive for some of the games.



No need to worry about getting lost as there’s a map to guide.
