Easter Festivities in Southeast Asia
While Easter is a traditional holiday and poignant Christian occasion around the world, it’s not so well known in Southeast Asia. But that hasn’t hindered a couple of innovative hotels from throwing on some fun-filled activities to remind guests about this most egg-citing of festivals.
