Visitors to Thailand during this holiday period may want to see some Dazzling New Year 2018 Light Displays in Bangkok as the Thai capital joins the nation and the entire world in preparation to bid goodbye to the old year, and embrace in the new.
Among the best locations are at the CentralWorld, EmQuartier and Emporium shopping complexes, where dazzling light displays have become a firm fixture on the calendar. And, especially for this holiday season, the ‘Thailand Illumination Festival 2017’ on Ratchadapisek 8 Road.
Here’re some of the images of the dazzling New Year 2018 light displays in Bangkok
Christmas at CentralWorld, from now until 7 January 2018, is decorated under the theme ‘The Dazzling Celebration’, featuring more than 400 Christmas decorations, cartoon characters and art pieces, including the five-metre-tall sculptures of Santa Claus and friends, created by the famous Argentinian illustrator, Javier González Burgos.
Thailand Illumination Festival 2017, from now until 6 January 2018, is inspired by the luminous garden lighting festival in Japan, currently lighting up a 39 rai (62,400 sq. m) plot of land on Ratchadapisek 8 Road with more than one million LED lights.
‘The Amazing Carnival‘ at MBK Center, from now until 31 January 2018. The highlight, the 18m Christmas tree, is uniquely decorated with Krajang, Thai double-leaf patterns, reflecting the Thainess of MBK Center. It also sets the tone for all decorations in the forms of fantasy circus that perfectly infuses both Thai and international elements.
Christmas Lighting at EmQuartier and Emporium, from now until 7 January 2018, is under the theme ‘Winter Wonderland the Grand Celebration’ with the highlights being the 12-meter-tall polar bear as well as 3D mapping.
Other shopping districts along Sukhumvit Road and around Ratchahprasong are also lit up with festive lights and decorations, including at the Gaysorn Village and adjacent InterContinental Hotel Bangkok.
Bangkok’s Christmas lights get better every year and attract sightseers as well as shoppers. This holiday season’s dazzling displays a proof that Thailand is getting into the festive atmospheres and is very much a place for enchantment and enjoyment and will remain so as we count down to 2018.
