Gong Xi Fa Cai! The Marco Polo Plaza, Cebu City’s finest, ushers in the Year of the Water Snake this 2013 with much festivity.


On February 9, 7:00PM, Marco Polo Plaza will kick off the celebration with the annual Yee Sang Tossing Ceremony to be participated in by 12 special guests from the province, media and Filipino-Chinese community. They will then gather around the Yee Sang, and using Marco Polo Plaza’s signature giant chopsticks, toss the salad into the air. Yee Sang is also known as the Prosperity Toss and it is said that the higher you toss it, the more luck you will have.

Aside from the Yee Sang ceremony, a lion and dragon dance will also commence at the hotel to bring in more good fortune. There will also be the traditional tossing of coins and a firecrackers display to ward off evil spirits.

The Year of the Water snake is the beginning of the new nine year cycle. Water Snakes are influential and insightful. They are motivated and very determined about success. They are intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animal Signs.

Come up and welcome the Year of the Water Snake at Cebu City’s only five-star hotel, the Marco Polo Plaza.  For inquiries and reservations, call 253-1111 loc 8245 or email mpplaza@marcopolohotels.com.
