Okura Garden Shanghai, which the writer loves and knows well having stayed there several times, has planned an Okura Christmas event which is definitely in the Chrismas spirit.
A deluxe room with double occupancy comes at a special Christmas rate of RMB 1,980.
This includes not just your accommodation but a Christmas dinner with a choice of venues.
You can either enjoy the Japanese Restaurant Yamazato, the Rose Coffee Shop or Baiyulan which is the Chinese Restaurant.
One serious choice would be the ‘Menu de Noël 2008’ at 33F French Restaurant Continental Room. The range of foods offered is quite amazing. And, yes, there is turkey.
The Okura has gone overboard with this. It asks:
Do you dream of having a carnival evening in our well-preserved Baroque decoration style Grand Ball Room?
Do you wish to come to a feast full of Chinese, European exquisite delicacies?
Want to enjoy a variety of live performances and shows with special effects of ‘sound,light and electricity’?
Think of being lucky enough to win a generous prize on Christmas Eve?
At this year’s Christmas Eve, you can realize all these dreams in the Christmas party at Okura Garden Hotel Shanghai.
Seems most enticing.
