There was also a traditional Chinese New Year dance show. These activities were all meant to bring prosperity for the coming year.
THE YEAR OF THE PIG
Matthias Sutter, General Manager of the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa participated in the Chinese Lunar New Year festivities. He painted the dot onto the lions’ eyes as a symbol of life-giving. The reason for this is so that the lions can see. This also ensures that they are lively and energetic during the lion dance performance.
