What’s on in February 2024 in Northern Thailand?

At Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, every guest, regardless of their journey or companions, is assured a stay that resonates with harmony, luxury, and the essence of Northern Thailand.

Feast for the Senses

A key highlight of the Lunar New Year is family get-togethers and dining experiences with live music and the lion dance taking centre-stage. The festive fervour reaches new highs as multiple venues come alive with themed lunches and dinners. Succulent Peking Roast Duck, served with delicate pancakes and Chef’s own house sauce will compete with Beef Yakiniku at the premium Asian BBQ section at KHAO by Four Seasons. “The finest desserts including a Chocolate Chinese Five-Spice Cake and Almond Jelly with seasonal fruits will leave you lingering for more,” says Thongpa. In keeping with tradition, a mesmerizing lion and dragon puppet dances will be performed by local troupes, and venues will be decorated with elegant lanterns during the New Year celebration. For those who would like to enjoy a leisurely day at the Resort, the afternoon tea featuring farm-fresh strawberries enhances the celebratory mood.

Revive and Prosper

In tune with the calmness of the spirit animal, Wara Cheewa Spa in Chiang Mai offers Lunar Radiance Spa Ritual – an immersive 90-minute ritual, pairing the 111SKIN Signature Harley Street Facial with a soothing leg and foot massage. “Two skilled therapists work in harmony in this sublime experience that boosts feelings of joyousness, and vitality,” suggests Saowapa Thumapun, Director of Spa. As one unwinds, sip on warm chrysanthemum tea and toast to a prosperous year ahead. Manifesting the calmness of the Yang Wood Dragon, the Resort will organize a New Moon Manifestation Sound Bath – a meditative journey set to the celestial tones of Crystal Singing Bowls and Tibetan Healing Bowls, perfectly timed with the New Moon. “This experience, along with Serene Sound Flow experience, are a symbol of new beginnings,” says Thumapun.

Family Fun

Elevating the joyousness of the Year of the Dragon, the La-On Kids Club features a range of themed activities. These complimentary offerings include a Lunar New Year Parade, a Treasure Hunt, Chinese Blossom Art Class, Chinese Dragon Mask Making, Dragon Puppet Making, New Year Chinese Drum, Panda Doll Making, Fan Painting, and more. “We promise a whole lot of fun and creative thinking during these sessions!” smiles Ashok Nair, Director of Rooms and Residences. And while the children are engaged, adults can truly immerse in the local tradition at their own pace – whether it is early morning cycling around Mae Rim valley, a relaxing private yoga session or even an active Muay Thai kickboxing lesson in the outdoors.
