One of the most popular holidays in Thailand. The Chinese New Year official opening ceremony in Yaowarat features cultural exchange performances from China. Every year, China sends over 100 traditional Chinese dancers and musicians, martial artists, Chinese opera performers and acrobats from several cities in a cultural exchange. Once celebrated among Thailand’s Chinese communities, today, the Chinese New Year is one of the Kingdom’s most exhilarating celebrations with many Thais joining in the various activities each year.
In addition to the opening ceremony at Bangkok’s Yaowarat, performances are also held in key cities around Thailand where Chinese New Yearis celebrated in grand style. In return, TAT organises education tours of Thailand for the performers.
