When it comes to celebrating Chinese New Year within the city, there’s no place that’s quite as fitting than Chinatown itself. And in the heart of all the festive bustle lies Chinatown Point – an indoor shopping haven to escape the humidity while still soaking in the celebratory spirit.

To usher in the festival, Chinatown Point is giving shoppers even more reason to visit with their Blooming Prosperity event between 10th January to 17th February 2019.

From being mesmerised by traditional Chinese music performances, to winning OSIM massage sofas worth up to $3,398, here’s what you can look forward to:

Spring Fair – CNY bazaar with vendors like Awfully Chocolate and KAZO

Part of commemorating Chinese New Year is all the feasting you’ll be doing – honestly the BEST part if you ask me. Get ready for the occasion by shopping for goodies from confectionaries like Awfully Chocolate, KAZO and KELE at the Spring Fair located in the spruced-up main atrium.

Plus, every $98 spent qualifies you for a Sure-Win Fortune Cookie of Xiao Ban, Hotstar or U, Me & Snacks vouchers! That won’t be hard to hit considering you’ll need to stock up on pineapple tarts, butter cookies and chocolate treats for upcoming house visits.

Dates: 15th Jan – 4th Feb 2019
Venue: Indoor Atrium & Outdoor Plaza, Level 1

Watch Lion Dance and traditional Chinese music string instrument performances or learn Wushu for free

Amidst all that shopping, you should take a breather to enjoy the side shows at the Indoor Atrium. Treat yourself to the traditional sounds of the Cultural 2-piece Ensemble Performances, where classic Chinese music instruments like the Pipa, Guzheng and Erhu will keep audiences entertained.

Kids will particularly love the Wushu Performances and Oriental Craft Workshops over the weekend of 26th and 27th January. Don’t be surprised if they start showing off their newly-learnt moves right after the performances!

And what’s Chinese New Year without a customary Lion Dance? Ring in a prosperous year ahead together with Chinatown Point and cap off CNY on a high note with the Lion Dance ceremony happening on 15th February.
