Sawaddee torn chao (good morning) all!
It’s that time of the year when joyful spirits are in the air with people celebrating the festive season.
Though Thailand is not a Christian country, Bangkok’s melting pot of diverse cultures makes Christmas vibes in this town not at all a stranger.
Here we made a little guide for you to get around and enjoy Christmas in Bangkok whether you just want to go get the atmosphere or party it off.
Follow the lights
You can’t deny that Christmas decorations have become attractions of the month. What else should we take selfies with when there are large cool Christmas trees all around? The best spot for wandering around in festive breeze is around Siam area. And good news is we’re located in the area.
Anyone down for a walking tour?
Starting from the hostel, you can find some lit-ups from the opposite MBK Center. Take skywalk through to Siam Paragon drop by for some photos in front of the popular mall and use the walkway there to get to the other end of BTS Siam station.
Walk on to Central World and here you are. The mother of all Christmas trees in Bangkok. Expect to see the big crowd in the front courtyard as well as beer parks you can chill out a bit. If you still don’t want to call it a day, make a turn to Ratchadamri Road and there’ll still be plenty of hotels and plaza lights to catch.
Make it a party night!
Christmas has it all for party animals. Here are a few!
