River Hong Bao 2018 春到河畔 2018

Happy Chinese New Year!

I visited the River Hong Bao at The Float @ Marina Bay on the second day of the Chinese New Year.

While walking over from MBS via Helix Bridge, the 18m tall God of Fortune caught my attention. Unlike previous years, this year's God of Fortune is more jovial.

The afternoon sun is such a killer. I cannot even open my eyes due to the glare!

I recommend coming in the evenings since it would be cooler and more comfortable. Besides, there will not be any golden showers from the God of Fortune till 7pm, 8pm, 9.10pm and 10pm so this is another consideration if that is what you are coming for.

Furthermore, the lanterns will look better in the dark when they are all lit up.

The most popular lanterns has got to be the twelve zodiacs which are sitting in automobiles this year. Remember to check your luck and fortune for the coming year.

One more for the dogs

The River Hong Bao will be on till the 24th of February. During the last two days on the 23rd and 24th, the Chingay procession will make an appearance on site. Also, there will be nightly fireworks and laser show at 9pm (9.40pm on the 23rd and 24th).
