The Year of the Rooster has started and the Spring Festival celebrations are coming to an end with the Lantern Festival. 

Held this Saturday, Feb 11, what better way to finish off the start of the Fire Rooster than by heading to Yu Gardens for an exquisite display. We promise, this stunning showcase of lanterns and a parade are worth battling the crowds for.     

The best time to see the lanterns is at night. We recommend picking up some yuan xiao too while you enjoy the spectacular display. These glutinous rice balls are stuffed with different fillings like sesame paste, peanut butter or sweet red bean paste.
