It is 31st of December in Thailand today and it is New Year Eve and since I live in Bangkok I would like to write about Bangkok New Year Eve a little bit.
The biggest of countdown event in Bangkok happens in front of CentralWorld mall, The largest lifestyle shopping destination in Bangkok on Ratchaprasong road. There are several hundred thousand revellers attend the event every year with spectacular light and sound shows and live on-stage performances by the country’s biggest and best-known singers, actors and musicians including the beer garden, lucky draws. And on the stroke of midnight, an incredible fireworks display announces the arrival of the New Year which is broadcast live on Thai television.
I attended Bangkok Countdown at CentralWorld about 4 years ago and it was SUPER crowded as if it was a New York Time Square in Bangkok. However, I remember the joy and fun 🙂
If you fancy something more private and intimate, it’s a good idea to indulge on a New Year’s Eve set dinner at one of the river side hotel restaurants or classy rooftop venues.
This year I decided to go to a cozy restaurant and have good food with my family and count down to a bright New Year.
