Agoda.com celebrates Chinese New Year with hotel specials throughout Asia

SINGAPORE (19 January,2015)

Agoda.com, one of Asia’s leading hotel booking sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), is celebrating one of Asia’s most colorful holidays with outstanding hotel specials for Chinese New Year.

The centuries-old tradition is based on several important aspects of Chinese culture – honoring one’s ancestors, worshiping deities, spending time with family, and a thorough cleaning of the house to symbolically sweep away bad luck. Throughout Asia’s Chinese communities, the holiday is enthusiastically celebrated. Dragon dances, firecrackers, food, music, and a variety of cultural performances can be seen in every neighborhood.

This year, travelers can celebrate the holiday in some of Asia’s most popular destinations. Discounts of at least 20% can be found throughout Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Pattaya, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bali, and Tokyo. Book now – the promotion is available for travel between 13-25 February, and only on bookings for 2 nights or more.
