Bangkok (People’s Daily) -- Chinese New year marks the beginning of a new cycle in the Chinese calendar and Chinese and Sino-Thais place great importance on celebrating this festival in the traditional way.

King Power, a leading lifestyle destination beyond its duty free business and with the motto "Explore Endlessly”, offers travelers the opportunity to enjoy a celebratory ambience with "King Power Chinese New Year 2019 the Blissful Harmony".

King Power has turned its premises into an ancient Chinese inn, "Rong Tiuem" in Thai, where travelers can sample a wide variety of delectable dishes created by famous restaurants. Visitors can also enjoy a dazzling show and ask for luck and prosperity in the 12 months to come from the popular Gods of the Chinese New Year brought to Bangkok especially for this occasion.
