Year of the Horse 2014

By Mark Constantine


Apart from receiving red pockets and having meals that will make you feel like you are about to explode from having so much food, what else can you do in Sydney to spend Chinese New Year?

1. Learn & play MahJong (an ancient & traditional Chinese game that requires a lot of thinking and strategy) at Mahjong Room and you can learn from there with a  3 hour session!
Cost :$39 (for lunch) – booking is essential!
Where: 312 Crown St, Surry Hills

2. Chinese New Year Twilight Parade
Get amongst the crowd on George Street and Darling Harbour for fireworks & entertainment after 8pm on 2nd February!

3. Dragon Boat Racing
These races are usually held during the Duanwu Festival, but you get to cheer for a team at Cockle Bay Wharf on the 8th & 9th of February! For more details, please click here.

4. If you want to stay out of the crowd, you can go to Crossing Boundaries, an art gallery at Town Hall Station. Otherwise, you can also go to Year of the Horse Exhibition at Surry Hills Library!

Just a little side note:
Kung Hei Fat Choi & Gong Xi Fa Cai has the same meaning – they are just in different dialects. KHFC is spoken in Cantonese whilst GXFC is in Mandarin.
