Even in a city in Southeast Asia, a huge capital city like Bangkok, here are so many things that bring home the Christmas season to our hearts. The Christmas carols are one, and we all have our favorite songs to hum or sing throughout the holidays. Of course there is also the shopping and all the markets and malls full of customers buying wonderful gifts, as well as both fun and funny presents, for their loved ones. Another element that really marks
A Christmas Celebration in Bangkok is the beautiful and festive lights that illuminate the shopping malls and streets,
Especially in the main commercial area of the capital, around Siam and so fortunately near our own VIE Hotel Bangkok, MGallery by Sofitel.
For guests at VIE Hotel Bangkok, all you have to do is take a merry stroll down toward the lights of MBK (Mah Boon Krong) shopping centre. You will find plenty of pretty lights and decorations to delight you and make some photos. This city has to be the best in the world for a “Christmas lights walking tour”. In fact, once you reach the walking bridge on the road there, passing the holiday glory of Paragon, you can go all the way to Chitlom and feast your eyes on a gorgeous display of lighting all along the way, which is all part of the wonder of a Christmas Celebration in Bangkok.
But one place you definitely do not want to miss during the Christmas Celebration in Bangkok is the enormous tree at Central World with its oversized ornaments. It is the largest Christmas tree in the city of Bangkok. This is a fantastic spot for a festive selfie, but it may take you a few tries before you can get the huge tree into your photo frame!
