Sunway Velocity Mall is proud to present one of its largest annual campaigns, welcoming the Lunar New Year in traditional Cantonese style. The mall brings patrons grand structures decorated in colours that depict wealth and prosperity. Sights of unique ancient Guangdong and Guangxi architecture plus detailed decorations reveal this year’s theme “A Cantonese Heritage Celebration”.

Delight in the whole visual expression that gives essence to the festive celebration. From meaningful Cantonese cultural symbols that are inspired by the Lingnan province and those that represent great fortune and prosperity, plus a flower market that marks a fresh and joyous life signifying rebirth, plus regal embellishments that illustrate a royal shade of red and gold - all these ignite the spirit of the Lunar New Year.

Aligned to the theme this year, Sunway Velocity Mall has a variety of Cantonese cultural workshops ready to take participants on an exciting journey. Learn opera mask-making and Chinese calligraphy or enjoy performances like Cantonese opera and Cantonese old folk songs - these provide great opportunities for families to come together in celebration of the new year.
