Welcome to 2015. It’s a brand new year and whilst the whole ‘new year, new me’ seems a bit cliché, there is something amazing about the clean slate that the 1st January brings and the chance to start a fresh!
Here at Ultimate Travel, we have been thinking about what we would like to get out of the next year. Working in the travel industry, it’s not surprising that most of our resolutions and wishes for the new year revolve around travel. We are EXCITED for the new year and the world of new experiences it brings with it: new places to visit, strangers to meet, foods to try and skills to learn.
We’ve created the Ultimate bucket list for 2015. Download it, print it, stick it on your fridge, in your bedroom or pack it in your backpack and make it your personal ‘bucket list’ check list for the new year. A few of the Ultimate staff share their Ultimate bucket lists with you…
Are you dreaming about travelling the world? Trying new things and experiencing the unknown? Now is the time to do it! No excuses … just do it! And we promise you won’t regret it. 2015 is going to be another awesome year for us – make sure yours is too!
We all know the score … a new year brings a new set of resolutions. You might be starting a new diet the next day or having a month of detox and no drinking. So for your last night of indulgence, you want to make your New Year’s Eve in Bangkok a special occasion. What a place to bring in the New Year too!
If you’re planning on spending New Year’s Eve in Bangkok , make sure you have somewhere to stay in good time. Bangkok is a busy place during the festive period and you don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you do not have a place to lay your head once you’re all partied out! You do not want to spend your New Year in Bangkok sleeping on a random bench somewhere!
Once you have glammed yourself up for the celebrations ahead, you need to find a party! This will not be hard! If you’re looking for the biggest event in town, head across to Central World Square and count down to the New Year with amazing light and sound shows, including live performances by some of the favourite local artists. You can also countdown with other countries, whose celebrations will be shown on huge projector screens. Be sure to get there at least three hours before the clock strikes 12 though, as it gets incredibly busy!
If large crowds feel a little impersonal or just aren’t ‘your thing’, there are plenty of rooftop venues in Bangkok that will give you a great view of the fireworks at midnight. These venues generally charge an entry fee and will require you to think ahead so that you can reserve your spot.
If you’re on a bit more of a budget than the rooftop venues will allow for, make your way to Thonglor, RCA, Silom or Khao San Road. Thonglor provides the hip and chic bars and the latter areas will provide the wild, well-into-the-night parties aimed at the younger and more energetic crowds.
Whatever you choose to do, wherever you choose to do it, you’ve picked a great city to welcome the New Year in and you’re certainly in for a night you’ll never forget … even if you don’t remember that much to begin with! Happy New Year from Ultimate Thailand – we hope your New Year in Bangkok is awesome!
