The act of gift giving is globally recognised. Japan is considered the most prevalent gift-giving country – in fact, so much so that it is a common stereotype that the Japanese have closets full of used gifts because they’re given for every conceivable occasion – while in China ancient traditions based largely around respect, relationships and rituals influence the role that gifts play, and they are usually given to strengthen the bond between two people.
Gifts can take on many appearances, from red envelopes containing money (given during the Spring Festival, also known as Chinese New Year) to culinary presents (such as peaches which symbolise longevity).
Hakkasan is offering a wide range of signature experiences available as gifts. These experiences include Dim Sum Sundays, Hakkasan Hanway Place’s celebration of the ancient Chinese ritual of dim sum, the Taste of Hakkasan menu for two curated by Executive Head Chef Tong Chee Hwee, the Whisky and Chocolate Flight with three whiskies and accompanying handmade chocolates, and the Hakkasan signature menu.
