Discover the Awakening of the Dragon at Resorts World Genting this Chinese New Year

In Chinese culture, the dragon symbolises great power, luck and strength. As the only mythical creature among the 12 Chinese zodiacs, it holds special significance to those celebrating the Lunar New Year. With that in mind, Resorts World Genting (RWG) invites you to usher in an auspicious Year of the Dragon with a bounty of activities and attractions across its resort.  

From dragon-inspired festive processions to a dazzling entertainment lineup, here are seven highlights to embrace joy, prosperity, and abundance with your loved ones at Resorts World Genting from now until 25 February 2024!
