Things to Do
Like other Western countries, Christmas has become one of the most important festivals of the year in Bangkok, especially for young people. At the beginning of December, shopping malls are decorated with dazzling decorations, and all kinds of discount promotions will also begin.
The malls will be decorated with Christmas trees, and all kinds of buildings, trees, bridges, and even tuk tuks and street food stalls are decorated with a riot of colors, Christmas lights, and flashing lights, turning Bangkok into a wonderland. All of these may make you forget that you are in a traditional Buddhist country.
