Splendour of Spring at Gurney Plaza

CHINESE New Year (CNY), which is also known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, is celebrated with many interesting customs, family reunion dinners and ancestral worship rituals.

The celebration is also believed to be significant to ensure good fortune and prosperity for the coming year and has many religious traditions and beliefs that hold value.

With its notable rich tradition, cultural and historical significance, CNY 2022, the Year of the Tiger will be celebrated on Feb 1. The tiger is considered the symbol of power in Chinese culture.

In celebration of this festive season, Gurney Plaza has transformed the heart of the premier lifestyle shopping mall in George Town, Penang for the prosperous occasion.

With the captivating theme ‘Splendour of Spring’, shoppers and visitors to the mall will be enthralled by its alluring celestial garden, guarded mystically by tall and strong bamboos, whilst being embellished by immeasurable and delicate moving flowers, welcoming all to enter to watch it bloom.

Wander further into the middle of the garden and you will be graced by a 28ft giant lantern, pieced together with beautifully designed round embroidery used as a backdrop; Instagram-worthy and perfect for shoppers who love taking pictures from all angles.

The garden could also almost be considered as a home for the flight of dragonflies that linger around the compound.

Signifying new beginnings, they can be found fluttering their wings around the winches and above dainty petals of the flowers that keep them company.

Celebrate the prosperous Lunar New Year with your friends and family as the mall operator brings fascinating events and redemptions throughout the occasion!

The highlight of the festive offerings at the mall – which has over 400 retail, food and beverages, as well as entertainment outlets – includes:
