If you’re looking to celebrate Chinese New Year in a unique and picturesque setting, you’re not going to want to miss the traditional festivities at Tai O Heritage Hotel. Dating back to 1902, the building was formerly the Tai O Police Station. It was then revitalised into the remarkable Tai O Heritage Hotel that stands today, complete with colonial-style rooms, a Heritage Interpretation Centre, and a breathtaking open-view restaurant. This year, its Lunar New Year festivities will take place on Saturday, 17 and Sunday, 18 February 2024 and promise a ton of fun for families.

Lunar New Year Art Installation At Tai O Heritage Hotel

To celebrate the Year of the Dragon, Tai O Heritage Hotel has collaborated with Tai O artist, Mr. Stanley Wong, and a team of volunteers to create a captivating Lunar New Year art installation. This artistic work beautifully blends the essence of the festival with the charm of Tai O. After all, there’s no better way to welcome the New Year than to immerse yourself in an artistic expression of Chinese culture.
