Chinese New Year 2015 Travel Specials

2015 is a year full of promises and opportunities to travel! With more long weekends this year in Singapore, you have to start planning for escapades early.

The upcoming Chinese New Year is a great time to start planning. For some of us, traveling close or after the New Year is ideal. For others, the long weekend is a great time to start keeping your New Year travel resolution!

Here are some incredible destinations to consider if you’re planning to travel during the Chinese New Year period!

Phuket, Thailand

Celebrate Chinese New Year with having fun with your family in Phuket during this festive season. Enjoy the beautiful resorts beaches, the shopping, and the excitement of the Thailand’s cultural theme park Phuket FantaSea performance and Phuket Safari!


The Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa is one of our preferred resorts for a great family vacation. Settled on a private stretch of Layan Beach, this luxury resort with boasts a fantastic view of the Andaman Sea.  The sprawling pool villas are their main draw.

Food in Phuket is amazing – you’re bound to just indulge in the best Phuket has to offer at the Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa. There are also exciting activities for the family such as the Siam Safari elephant camp on the top of a mountain – this is where Phuket’s best elephant trek and best cared for elephants reside.

If you prefer a more scenic day out, cruise on a traditional wooden junk in Chalong Bay around Lone Island where you can see amazing views and incredibly beautiful surrounding islands. Or  learn how Thai jungle curry is made – it’s reputed as a highly spicy dish, so try it if you dare!

With this Jetabout Holidays promotion, you get to enjoy a Deluxe Pool Villa with your loved ones at the beautiful sanctuary, with daily breakfast. After a hearty meal, the tranquil beachfront is all yours. The turquoise waters and gentle waves and the Andaman breeze will cap the perfect start to 2015 for you!

You can also enjoy Thailand’s cultural theme park within Phuket FantaSea. The founders of the theme park describe it as “a living tapestry of Thai history and culture, all woven together in one magical creation designed to share the extraordinary wealth of our heritage for all the world to experience.” Definitely an amusement park you wouldn’t want to miss!

We also offer alternative promotion packages this Chinese New Year with a stay at either the Dewa Nai Yang Beach Resort or the trendy Kee Resort & Spa. Check out the festive deals valid for a limited time here!



The Maldives has always been a destination on our list of islands to visit. Immerse yourself in absolute serenity and be overwhelmed by fantastic vistas and sunsets the Maldives have to offer, allowing a peace and tranquility aplenty for your precious Chinese New Year time with your family. Take this opportunity and grab the chance to this beautiful island this festive season.


With the Maldives promotions, you travel via Singapore Airlines to one of the beautiful resorts of your choice, depending on which package you choose:

Your 4-night stay in Maldives promises an amazingly romantic getaway, and your breath will be taken by the magnificent view of the islands – no matter where you go in the Maldives, you’ll be greeted by the enchanting ocean blue and incredibly white beaches. (Our previous post on the Maldives can attest to this!).

One tip we’ve always offered travelers to Maldives (or any long-haul destinations) – it’s always best to get an all-inclusive package to the destination. This will contribute to savings for you, and also promises you a hassle-free vacation where you only need to enjoy the journey.

If these destinations are not on your list this Chinese New Year, check out our cruise deals on Princess Cruises! Available to various destinations, this could be just the start your family needs this festive season!
