Without a doubt, Bangkok is an exciting place to be in at any time of the year.
Nevertheless, the city really seems to get a new lease on life as the New Year approaches.
In particular, during New Year’s Eve, there are many fun and memorable activities you can be part of during your stay in Bangkok.
Below are some of the things you can try out in the city as you welcome the New Year.
Bangkok organizes numerous dinner cruises for anybody who wants to usher in the New Year in style.
The cruises usually occur along famous Bangkok waterways, for instance, Chaophraya River and Loy Nava River. These cruises are open to both adults and children.
More importantly, they feature delicious exotic dinners, cocktails, champagne, open bars, live band performances, great scenic views, and countdowns to the New Year culminating in beautiful fireworks.
Typically, the cruises lasts about 3 to 5 hours ending within an hour after the New Year begins.
You can spend the last few hours of the year partying in some of Bangkok’s favorite nightclubs.
During this festive season, you can enjoy unique DJ appearances, live bands, exciting party light shows, extra-friendly staff, dance shows, and free drinks for the partygoers.
Unlike the dinner cruises, the nightclub New Year’s parties last all night, and they also feature countdowns to the New Year.
Sometimes, the parties are held on rooftops and feature pools, which only adds to the excitement of the party.
Many top restaurants in Bangkok go over and beyond in their attempts to offer their patrons unforgettable New Year’s Eve experiences.
The music and décor is changed to offer a red-carpet buffet experience not available any other time of the year.
Sometimes, live bands, DJs, open bars, great rooftop views of Bangkok city and fireworks to mark the start of the New Year accompany the New Year’s Eve restaurant experience.
New Year’s Eve Countdown Party at the Central World
Central World, a major shopping destination in Bangkok, hosts what is arguably the biggest countdown party in Bangkok.
You can join thousands of other Bangkok residents at the front of this shopping plaza and enjoy the festive spirit of the Bangkok New Year’s Eve through live shows, light shows, sound performances, popular bands, and fun firework shows.
Of course, this option is for those who have no problem having a good time amidst surging crowds. For a quieter New Year’s Eve experience, you would have to stick to restaurants or dinner cruises.
Partying in Bangkok Streets
You can also decide to spend the last night of the year dancing and partying in Bangkok’s streets, the most notorious of which is the famous Khao San Road.
Granted, this street is the life of the party for most Bangkok dwellers.
Nevertheless, during the New Year’s Eve, you can also enjoy a DJ performance, big screen displays of the final moments of the year, drinking, and much more fun activities, right in the middle the street.
So There You Have It!
Whether you like your New Year’s Eve quiet or filled with other excited people, Bangkok has everything you need to make your end year experience one you will cherish for years to come.
Some of the popular options for the New Year include dinner cruises, special nightclub experiences, unique restaurant experiences, and popular New Year’s Eve parties outside Central World or in the Streets of Khao San Road.
