Fairmont Yangcheng Lake Launches Hairy Crab Season

Luxury Kunshan Resort Hosting the First-Catch, Hairy Crab Pardon and Hairy Crab Feast

KUNSHAN, JIANGSU, CHINA--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - To celebrate the return of one of China's best-loved seasonal delicacies, Fairmont Yangcheng Lake is offering an exceptional getaway focused on Hairy Crabs.

The autumn Hairy Crab season also coincides with the second anniversary of Fairmont Yangcheng Lake, the area's first international five-star hotel. Located between Shanghai and Suzhou, this stunning resort features 200 acres of parks, an organic farm and a wide range of activities. As the only luxury hotel on Yangcheng Lakes' tranquil shores, it has also become the destination to savour Chinese Hairy Crabs.

For guests at this distinctive Kunshan hotel, the most prized Hairy Crabs come from the deep, cold waters of Yangcheng Lake. (Note: As part of Fairmont's ongoing green initiatives, Hairy Crabs are sustainably farmed.)

To celebrate Hairy Crab season, on September 28, Fairmont will host the "2011 First Hairy Crab Catch" ceremony, as well as a "crab pardoning" ceremony for two lucky crabs, and a crab connoisseur's feast.

Guests can join this year's festivities with the "Real Crab in Real Style" package, available September through December, with rates starting from RMB1,808 per night.

Explore this and other packages at our Kunshan hotel -- and celebrate Hairy Crab season at Fairmont Yangcheng Lake.
