Welcome the year of the rooster with dance, Asian entertainment and a great deal of warm-heartedness when the Taiwanese community in Vienna opens its doors to their dazzling Chinese New Year’s ball 2017 on 4 February. Over the decades, it has become a wonderful tradition for the Taiwanese community in Vienna to host the Chinese New Year’s ball and welcome everyone with open hearts. The event is organised and sponsored by EETS, a family-run travel agency. Ying Wu of EETS has been part of the special ball since his early childhood and fondly remembers: “I was brought to this festival every year to celebrate our new year, which follows the lunar calendar. The ball was a way to honour our culture in Vienna and to wish everyone good luck for the coming year.
