agoda.com Leaps into Chinese Year of the Rabbit with Great Thailand Hotel Deals

Agoda.com, Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed priceline.com Inc., celebrates Chinese New Year with special hotel deals across Thailand.

Chinese New Year is one of Thailand’s most widely celebrated events, with Thais of Chinese descent making up to 14 percent of Thailand’s population. While Bangkok is certainly a major hub of activity during this time, festivities surrounding the New Year extend far beyond Chinatown’s Yaowarat Road.
