Dragon City, Bahrain’s flagship wholesale and retail shopping destination, held an official opening ceremony in the Central Square of Dragon Mall to mark the launch of the Summer Surprise Month on Wednesday, the 18th of May, 2016. The Summer Surprise Month will run from the 18th of May to the 18th of June, 2016.

The Chinese culture themed ceremony heralded the start of the Summer Surprise Month in grand style as a true reflection of the occasions that the festival seeks to celebrate; the completion of the first quarter since Dragon City’s inauguration and the successful consolidation, during that time, of its position as a melting-pot of fusing cultures and as the preferred destination of choice for all requirements of the people of Bahrain and its neighbouring countries, both wholesale and retail. The ceremony was attended by dignitaries and exclusively invited guests of Dragon City management, along with members of the local media, in the presence of visitors.

To elaborate on the traditions of Chinese culture and the beauty encompassed in its heritage, the opening ceremony included the opportunity to engage in Chinese tea-making alongside specialized professionals and the chance to witness the almost ethereal, ancient art of Chinese calligraphy in all its glory. Guests also get to attend an exhilarating show put on by masters of the Chinese martial art, Tai chi, as they are given the privilege to experience one of China’s most defining characteristics that has been ever-present throughout its illustrious history.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Patrick Zheng Shuo, General Manager of Chinamex Middle East Investment & Trade Company Limited, the operating company of Dragon City, said: “With a whole host of entertainment opportunities in store throughout the month, we are proud to welcome everyone to our latest offering, the Summer Surprise Month. On behalf of Dragon City, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to everyone involved right from the beginning for their sincere commitment and hard work and to everyone present for their genuine interest and show of support.”
