Overview

River Hongbao is one event during every Chinese Lunar New Year that Singaporeans and tourists really look forward to. The River Hongbao is usually held at The Float at Marina Bay, overlooking the splendid Marina waterfront area, as well as a panoramic view of Singapore’s skyline. The large premises are decorated with auspicious Chinese characters during this period, such as the twelve zodiac animals. In the evening, the whole venue lights up in a beautiful myriad of colours, and visitors will be able to catch performances by performing troupes or singing groups. And the best part, admission is free for all.

Dropped by with foreign friends and my 1st time. I reckon they hold this annually for many years now. Held during the chinese new year , it attracts quite the crowd. The 9pm fireworks help. It's very kitschy though

Worth a walk down to the Marina Bay to see this colourful festival if you happen to be in Singapore during the Chinese New Year festivities. There are Chinese Lanterns, a fun fair, lots of street food, fireworks and floats and parades. Fun, and something...More

It's amazing and very colorful. It's a monkey themed decoration wherein they represent it well. My family enjoyed taking pictures with those giant lanterns.
