New Year's Eve 2018 in Bangkok,Thailand ( by Bangkok Dinner Cruise ) Perhaps the most deliberately hedonistic of holidays, New Year's Eve is the culmination of the Lunar year, and time to squeeze in the last of guilty pleasures. Like everywhere else, people in Bangkok head out on the town, searching for a final fix. Seeking some culinary indulgences before the beginning of a rigorous macrobiotic diet, or one last riotous night of hard-core partying? This is the night traditionally set aside for total indulgence, to bask in all the sinful pleasures that delight us. So, break out the stilettos and hit the town, for the City of Angels - contrary to the meaning of its official name, 'Krung Thep' - harbors only heathens on New Year's Eve...
Celebrating New Year's Eve in Bangkok can be truly spectacular, and there's something for everyone. Thailand is also possibly the only country in the world that welcomes a new year no less than three times annually! The Chinese New Year is greeted at the end of January, while the legendary Thai New Year (Songkran) is celebrated over several days in April. Over the years, the Western New Year has been accepted as yet another occasion to party. From spectacular events featuring world-class entertainment, imported DJ's spinning their stuff at the city's swanky clubs and colourful countdown celebrations, to dazzling firework extravaganzas at the riverside and raunchy pole-dancers at Go-Go parties, you'll find it all in Bangkok.
Planning The Night
For starters, make sure you have a comfortable place to stay. Bangkok offers a great multitude of hotels, from low-cost to luxury, five-star experiences. You'll find something perfectly suited to your taste, style and budget in our accommodation section in all prime city areas - make your pick! The festive season is a busy time in the Thai capital, so avoid disappointment and make a reservation in advance. Then choose a party. Naturally, countdown events in the city's various corners will have their own character and attract different crowds, but one thing is guaranteed: wherever you go, it'll be a unique and memorable experience. No matter where you'll be, at midnight dazzling fireworks will magically light up the skies above the city. Partying continues into the early hours. And, as soon as the sun comes up, many Thai people will head to temples for merit-making - to ensure that a happy and prosperous year follows.
Official Countdown Events If you want to spend the arrival of the New Year in public along with thousands of others, there are three official venues in Bangkok to choose from. The biggest of them all happens in front of the newly revamped CentralWorld, in an area which is now called CentralWorld Square. With several hundred thousand revelers expected to attend, this is where it'll be happening! Leave the old year behind and welcome the new one with friends and family, spectacular light and sound shows and live on-stage performances by popular local artists. Enjoy the beer garden, lucky draws and countdown with other countries around the world on large-screen projections. The event is also broadcasted live by Thailand's Channel 7 (get there anytime from 18:00 onwards).
Likewise, the New Year's celebrations at the National Stadium have a contemporary feel. Expect a variety of stage performances and other entertainment including new and rising talent right through to the countdown. The star-studded event is organised by GMM Grammy Records and broadcasted live by Channel 9. A more traditional countdown takes place at Sanam Luang near the Grand Palace. If you're looking to celebrate the New Year in a cultured fashion, this is where you should be heading. Geared towards an older generation, celebrations take a more traditional and cultural stance. The entertainment programme includes performances by several respected Thai musicians and classical Thai dance troupes. The Governor of Bangkok normally delivers a speech, and the event is attended by several religious leaders who bless the year that lies ahead
