SALA Welcomes the Year of the Snake

Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays and 2013 will welcome the mythical Year of The Snake! And due to the fact that Thailand is home to the largest overseas Chinese community in the world - Chinese make up 14% of the Thai population - the celebrations are many. And with that the promise of a colourful and memorable experience is assured!

The history of this important holiday actually dates back centuries and is rich in both myth and tradition. People tend to spend without limit to buy presents, decoration and materials in the signature red colour to ensure future wealth, good fortune, happiness and longevity. It is also critical to clean one’s home thoroughly to sweep away any ill-fortune.

2013 is the year of the snake and according to the myth that has lived on for years; a snake in the house is a good omen and means food will be plentiful. The snake is also intuitive, introspective and refined which should mean we are in for a wonderful year.

You’re invited to join us Sunday, February 10th in Samui, Phuket or Khao Yai for what is sure to be an exciting and truly amazing Welcoming of the Year of the Snake. And if you don’t happen to be in Thailand, take a moment to read and reflect on this colourful and exciting tradition.

Happy Chinese New Year 2013


SALA SCENE

sala rattanakosin Bangkok

Rattanakosin รัตนโกสินทร์ - also known as Rattanakosin Island, is the historic centre of Bangkok, where many of the must see sights for tourists and locals alike may be found, including the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and the picturesque Wat Arun or Temple of Dawn.

Rattanakosin Island has a long history dating back to 1782 when King Rama I moved the Siamese capital across the river from Thonburi, starting a period in Thai history known as the Rattanakosin Period. Spending a few days in this remarkable district does not just show you dozens of traditional Buddhist temples, palaces, museums, parks and monuments, but also gives you a better understanding of the culture, history and religion of the Thai people.

And as of April, there will be no better place to call home during your intimate and indulgent cultural immersion than sala rattanakosin Bangkok.

Why Here?

In The Words of Executive Chef Nicholas Hall

Gracing the pages of Samui Holiday Magazine recently was none other than the famously talented Chef Nick from our very own SALA Samui Resort & Spa.

Chef shared with the readers why he abandoned his dreams of being a helicopter pilot, travelled the world, owned his own lovely eatery and ending up adding his twist on Contemporary Asian Cuisine on the magical isle of Koh Samui.

He was also generous enough to share a peek inside his private life and his passion outside of the kitchen; his family.

This is just one more reason a visit to SALA Samui is beyond a dream vacation; it also affords the opportunity to meet, dine and ask Chef Nick personally, ‘Why Here?’ You might be surprised the answer.

What's certain is that Chef Nick has no plans to move on as he found sunny spot to stop, call home and amaze diners daily. What else he might tell you, well, you better ask for yourself and see!
