Chinese New Year is indeed a time for family, friends, shared meals and cultural displays. The hotel lobby and restaurants are decorated in auspicious tones with red flowers, pink plum blossoms and laden kumquat trees. On 6 February, a traditional lion dance performance will be on show at 10:00am at the lobby of InterContinental Kuala Lumpur for an affluent year of great blessings. The lion dance, accompanied by the music of beating drums, clashing cymbals, and resounding gongs while demonstrating martial arts agility, is a traditional Chinese dance performed on big occasions for good luck as it is believed that the lion is an auspicious animal.
