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!
