Chinese New Year In The Sky at Resorts World Genting

To celebrate a magnificent start to a prosperous new cycle, Resorts World Genting will be bathed in a shower of red and gold, setting the stage to usher in a brilliant new year and a bountiful new cycle of the Chinese zodiac where a grand Chinese New Year In The Sky awaits.

The year 2020 will be the year of the Metal Rat. As the first sign of the 12-year zodiac animal cycle, the Metal Rat will bring with it a strong and flourishing year for all the zodiacs. In the fable, the Rat pipped all the other animals in the Great Race to the Jade Palace through a combination of strategic planning and skill. These are qualities that will guide success over the new 12-year cycle and will form the theme of Resorts World Genting’s extravagant Chinese New Year 2020 celebrations.
